(WASHINGTON, D.C., 6/1/20) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today reminded American Muslims to responsibly practice social distancing and participate tomorrow in primary elections in the District of Columbia, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and South Dakota, by taking advantage of – where possible – voting by mail or vote-by-mail alternatives.

Tonight, CAIR will broadcast night-before-election automated call reminders to registered Muslim voter households in these states to get out the vote in what is being dubbed the “New Super Tuesday” because so many states postponed their elections due to the coronavirus pandemic.
CAIR will continue to broadcast night-before-election automated call reminders before each state’s primary or caucus election, targeting more than 147,000 Muslim households representing some 605,135 registered American Muslim voters. The Washington-based civil rights organization estimates there are more than one million registered American Muslim voters in the United States with large communities residing in key swing states.
The calls are part of CAIR’s 2020 General Election “Muslims Vote Campaign” to increase Muslim voter turnout nationwide.
Following the nationwide “Super Tuesday” primary elections, CAIR released the results of its “#MuslimsVote 2020 Super Tuesday Exit Poll and Survey.”
If you believe your voting rights have been violated, please contact CAIR at (202) 488-8787 or [email protected].
