With candidates beginning to prepare for the 2024 presidential election, there are a number of pressing issues that have become the forefront of voter concerns: transgender health care, abortion, the costs of healthcare, and the age of the candidates are just a few of the issues that have become hot topics of discussion.
In recent years, discussions surrounding gender identity and transgender-related care have gained significant traction in American politics and voters from all parties will be looking to see how candidates – whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent – address this topic in their campaigns. Discussions around legal recognition, protection against discrimination for transgender and non-binary individuals, and gender-affirming care and mental health support have gained momentum in recent years, and with the growing number of voters paying close attention to how candidates address the needs and concerns of the LGBTQ+ community, it will be critical for candidates to show their commitment to inclusivity and equality.
The roster of professional voiceover talent at Blue Wave Voiceover includes individuals with diverse gender identities, including non-binary and transgender voices. They are equipped to navigate the nuances of gender identity politics and effectively communicate positions and policies that support the rights and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community. By incorporating these voices into campaigns, candidates can connect meaningfully with these audiences and their allies to show their support and commitment to building a more inclusive and equitable society.
High Healthcare Costs That Affect Every Demographic
The rising costs of healthcare continue to be a source of concern for Americans – both Democrat and Republican voters will be paying attention to how candidates intend to address this topic. Candidates from both major parties have recognized the urgency of this issue and, building on President Biden’s emphasis on healthcare costs as one of his central talking points in his campaign, candidates are developing plans aimed at making healthcare more accessible and affordable for all. Proposed plans range from expanding public healthcare options to exploring ways to reduce prescription drug costs to championing preventative care initiatives. No matter what side of the party line, all voters are in agreement that there needs to be new solutions for alleviating the financial burden of healthcare costs.
Working with a professional voiceover artist adds a human touch when talking about topics like the healthcare affordability crisis and abortion which have the potential to be a source of high emotion, anxiety and frustration for many, especially in light of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Having a reassuring, calm, yet authoritative voice in campaigns builds trust with voters and helps them feel seen and heard.
When Age Is More Than Just a Number
What’s in an age? It turns out a lot, when it comes to how voters feel about President Biden and former President Trump, the current Democratic and Republican front runners in the 2024 election. As voters consider the generational perspectives of candidates and weigh age as a factor in a candidate’s ability to fulfill the responsibilities of the role, it is critical for campaigns to find a balance that resonates with diverse age groups. According to this USA Today article, voters are particularly interested in the age of candidates, with frequent comparisons between President Biden (80 years old) and former President Trump (77 years old).
By bringing in voices that represent all age brackets to their campaigns, candidates have the opportunity to bridge generational divides and connect with a wide range of voters. Whether candidates are looking to reassure voters with the experience, stability, and knowledge that age brings or whether candidates are looking to position themselves as understanding the issues that face younger voters such as transgender healthcare and the costs of healthcare, working with professional voice actors can help candidates reach their target audiences. The professional voice actors at Blue Wave Voiceover offer mature voices to communicate experience and stability, and Millennial and Gen Z voices can connect with younger audiences to ensure all these voters feel seen and heard.
