Election issues that matter most

With one in seven Australians aged 65 or older, it goes without saying that they will play a huge part in deciding who will be in power after the 2019 federal election.

Many older Australians look forward to the next big event that will shape our nation – the 2019 federal election.

Will the party that promises lower energy bills get your vote? Will your decision be made on Age Pension increases? Or will responsible action on climate change sway your preference?
