50 & Older Voters Dominate Idaho

As Idaho candidates enter into the home stretch towards Election Day, the state's voters age 50 and older will likely determine who crosses the finish line and who doesn't.  While the 50+ in Idaho are already expected to make up over half (56%) of all votes cast this year, a new AARP analysis of voters under and over the age of 50 in Idaho elections finds that if voting trends hold, the group could account for over two-thirds of all voters come November 2/PR News Wire. More here.

Question: Does it bother you that 2/3s of the votes in Idaho this fall will likely come from individuals who are 50 and older?
