Results 2020 & The 50+ Voter


Election night has come and gone.

50+ voters were seen as key to winning many races in battleground states. Women over 50 have been of particular interest to pollsters in the lead up to the election. But just how much did this community affect the results?

Whether by mail or otherwise, 50+ voters cast their ballots and made their voices heard and as the election day dust clears, we can now see just what people and policies won their vote.

Where did 50+ voters have the greatest impact? How did this community vote and what issues did they embrace? Was voter turnout impacted by health and safety concerns? How did mail-in voting change the game for older voters?

The Hill will sit down with political analysts and lawmakers to take an in-depth look at the role of older voters this election.
