The 2020 general elections defined an incredibly historic year for our nation. With over 159.8 million ballots cast, the 2020 elections was the highest turnout rate ever recorded in history.
As an organization committed to empowering Muslim American voters, it is vital that we work together to pursue legislation on both a state and federal level to protect voters and combat any attempt to curb access to our fundamental right to vote. These actions include promoting access to the ballot box, fighting voter suppression, restoring the right to vote, and combatting gerrymandering efforts at the state-level.
In the face of a global pandemic, we saw the importance of increasing the access resources such in mail-in voting, accessible and safe sites and expanded early voting. These efforts demonstrated what is possible when we ensure our communities are protected from any form of intimidation. Our vote is our voice, and we are committed to protecting the integrity of elections and our access to voting.
