Election 2020

The 2020 Presidential race is underway. With more than 20 candidates vying for the Democratic and Republican nominations, the road to the White House runs across America. To break through with voters, Democrats and Republicans need to focus on the issues impacting the nation's economy, health care system and families. And, with more than 7 in 10 voters saying they are more likely to vote for a candidate who pledges to support policies to fight Alzheimer's, candidates would be wise to talk about their plan to address Alzheimer's.


Nearly 38 million American voters have provided care for someone with Alzheimer's or another dementia. This election season AIM advocates across the country are engaging candidates on the #Road2ENDALZ. At campaign events, through the media, on social networks and more, voters are sharing how Alzheimer's has impacted their lives and asking candidates for their plan to address the Alzheimer's crisis.
