Today is National Muslim Voter Registration Day! An estimated 3.5 million Muslims living in the United States and our goal is to have every eligible Muslim registered to vote and showing up to the polls in November for both Presidential and local elections.
Last week at the Azaadi Mela in Lawrenceville, visitors stopped by Georgia Muslim Voter Project’s Booth and let us know what was important to them as voters. Check out some of the photos below.
In the past few years, there has been a resurgence of anti-muslim rhetoric in the political sphere. However, we have also seen record numbers of political engagement within the Muslim community. More than 90 individuals who identified as Muslim ran for public office in 2018. It is important to keep up the enthusiasm for civic engagement as every election is a chance to impact public policy and let your representatives know what issues are important to you.
This National Muslim Voter Registration Day, Georgia Muslim Voter Project is coordinating with several organizations across the nation to register thousands of Muslim voters, listen to the issues they’re prioritizing, and raising their voices to ensure our representatives and candidates running for office hear them, too!
Help us celebrate National Muslim Voter Registration Day by letting us know what your #MyMuslimVote is for.
