Let's Get Out the Vote!

Friends,

Assalam alaikum,

As November 8th, the Election Day, fast approaches it is very important that all American Muslims stand up and are counted.

For this reason, the Alabama chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, is holding several events in the coming weeks to ensure as many of us perform our civic duty of voting.

Voting not only means that we have a say in the results of the election, but a high Muslim turnout gives us leverage in numbers when electing representatives, regardless of outcome in the election. 

We are reaching out to you, members of our community, to volunteer your time for one or more of the following initiatives:

Wednesday, October 19, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Phone banking: One America #CAIR2VOTE Alabama Campaign Headquarters (Birmingham) 

We'll be calling Alabamian Muslims and urging them to register if they haven't yet, help others already registered with information regarding their polling station, and share other important voter information. 

The calls are made using a specific script. As volunteers you will receive a short training on how to conduct these calls.

Volunteers will be using their own phone (required) and a laptop (preferred, but not required). You do not need to be present for the entire time period of 6:00 - 9:00 PM.

Thursday, October 20, 6:00 - 9:00 PM
Phone banking: One America #CAIR2VOTE Alabama Campaign Headquarters (Birmingham) 

Please see description above.

Friday (Jumma) Prayer, October 21
Registering voters ON-SITE at mosques around Alabama: Volunteers will help to complete voter registration forms, provide information. Volunteers are needed for Anniston, Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery mosques and university campuses.
