Asking questions of our political candidates can help us understand where they stand on issues. To support that aim, AGS leaders and public policy experts have developed a compendium of questions that AGS members and others can use to ascertain where candidates stand on issues important to achieving our vision for health care and older adults. This question guide will help hold officials accountable by encouraging those who run for any office—including and perhaps especially the presidency—to articulate a clear, actionable vision to meet the needs of all older Americans.
