CAIR is mobilizing American Muslims through voter registration drives, get-out-the-vote efforts, and by providing candidates for public office with hard data about your views on important issues to the Muslim community.
Working on behalf of the American Muslim Community, this election CAIR’s MUSLIM GOTV project is working to:
Remind American Muslims to go to the poll’s in their state’s primaries.
Conduct several nights before the election a nationwide GOTV reminder phone call that will reach over 250,000 Muslim households.
"It is the responsibility of every American Muslim to ensure the continued growth of our community's political strength and capacity to turn out each and every election. Our vote counts and is being counted on. Who wins or loses any given race is in the hands of only the most proactive of communities, so let's make sure every politician wants to earn the confidence and votes of American Muslims."

Muslims Are Proud to be American
Despite the concerns and perceived challenges they face, 89% of Muslims say they are both proud to be American and proud to be Muslim. Fully eight-in-ten say they are satisfied with the way things are going in their lives. And a large majority of U.S. Muslims continue to profess faith in the American dream, with 70% saying that most people who want to get ahead can make it in America if they are willing to work hard.
