“I believe we have at least 1 million Muslim eligible voters in this country. We have to register every single Muslim to vote in 2016. Turn your organizations, Islamic centers, and mosques into registration centers for voters and polling stations during the election. The Muslim vote can be the swing vote in major states. What kind of America are we going to have depends on you.”
