Georgia Muslim Voter Project

Who are we?

The Georgia Muslim Voter Project (GAMVP) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan voter education and voter engagement organization working throughout Metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia.

We were founded in 2015 to boost civic engagement among the Muslim community in Georgia.

The Leadership Our City Needs

The GAMVP board, staff, and volunteers facilitate nonpartisan voter registration and nonpartisan Get Out the Vote campaigns. We believe that every vote counts!
During this election cycle, we have noted an uptick in confusion from voters about casting absentee ballots. Voters are unsure whether their absentee ballots will count or be rejected, how they will be notified if their ballots are rejected, and what recourse they have regarding casting absentee ballots that have been rejected.

A Vision For The Future

The Georgia Muslim Voter Project was founded in late 2015, in response to the growing anti-Muslim rhetoric that was prevalent in mainstream politics and the low rates of civic engagement in the Muslim community. The mission of GAMVP is to activate Muslim voters in order to elevate our voices. We stand for equal representation and justice in all forms.

Vision

Actionable Issues

One of the main problems we noticed coming into this work was the apathy surrounding voting and civic engagement in general. Before even getting to the stage of registering new voters, we wanted to make sure that we were doing our part to educate communities as a whole about why it was so important to become active in the political process.

Statement on pending lawsuit

On October 23, 2018, GAMVP asked the Court to issue a temporary restraining order giving absentee ballot voters due process if their absentee ballots have been rejected by election officials. The Defendant’s claim was that there is “no time” to make this right. NOW is exactly the time to make things right.

Mission & Values

GAMVP has spent additional time and resources to change our voter registration and engagement scripts, to go back and contact voters that we registered, and retrain volunteers to work with voters to ensure they understand how to determine if their ballot was rejected.
