Assalamu Alaikum,

The registration deadline for the 2024 primary elections is Feb. 20th. This year is a critical opportunity to push for justice. Please ensure every family member & friend has registered to vote.

Why should I vote?

Local elections are particularly sensitive to voter turnout. Frequently, candidates win and ballot measures pass by a marginal difference. For many local positions, only the top two vote-getters in the primaries move on to the general election in November. There are an estimated over 1 million Muslims in California – enough to make a meaningful difference.

Every ballot that we cast, even empty ones, increases our presence on the voter roll. Politicians review voter rolls to understand demographics and determine policy.

How can I prepare?

  1. Determine your household member voter eligibility. US citizens who reside in California, will be 18 or older on Election Day [March 5th for Primary; November 5th for General], who are not currently serving a state or federal prison term for a felony, and who have not been determined to be mentally incompetent to vote by a court, can vote. More info here
  2. Register to vote.
  1. Spread the word. Every vote counts. Encourage family, friends and any groups you’re part of to register.
