CAIR Urges Voting as a Positive Response to Anti-Muslim ‘Hysteria’
Public officials, candidates, commentators urged to reject Islamophobia

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 10/29/2008) - A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today called on American Muslim voters to turn out in large numbers at the polls on November 4th as a positive response to Islamophobic bias and stereotyping in political campaigns.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) also urged candidates, public officials and opinion leaders to emulate former Secretary of State Colin Powell in speaking out against the rising level of anti-Muslim rhetoric in our society.

In a statement, CAIR said:

“At a time when we need to improve our relations with and image in the Muslim world, our nation is ill-served by the continuing exploitation and promotion of anti-Muslim hysteria. Our nation’s leaders, whether at the local state or national levels, need to speak out clearly against rhetoric or actions that target any faith community. American Muslims can best respond to these smears by going to the polls on November 4th and voting for the candidates of their choice.”

CAIR ACTION ALERT #552

MUSLIMS URGED TO VOTE IN RECORD NUMBERS
Exercise your rights, defend your future

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/3/2008) CAIR is urging every eligible Muslim voter to go to the polls on November 4 and vote for the candidates of their choice.

To help get out the Muslim vote nationwide, CAIR 1) held candidate forums, 2) distributed voter guides, 3) organized voter registration drives, 4) hosted political participation workshops in mosques, 5) sponsored meetings with elected representatives, 6) participated in get-out-the-vote (GOTV) drives, and 7) urged American Muslims to vote as a positive response to Islamophobia in the election campaign.

SEE: AMT-PAC Presidential Scorecard
SEE: CAIR’s 2008 Election Site
SEE: CAIR Civic Participation Handbook


“As a vocal minority seeks to marginalize the Islamic community, it is more important than even for American Muslims to turn out on Tuesday to vote,” said CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad. Awad said CAIR will conduct an exit poll of Muslim voters.

SEE: How Islamophobes Spread Fear, Bigotry and Misinformation


ACTION REQUESTED

1. GO TO THE POLLS on Tuesday and VOTE!

2. TAKE A MUSLIM friend or family member along with you to vote.

3. REPORT any incidents of voter intimidation, harassment or denial of the right to vote to CAIR. Contact CAIR by calling 202-488-8787, or by e-mailing csaylor@cair.com

4. DISTRIBUTE this alert on your personal e-mail list.

WHAT TO DO ON ELECTION DAY

1. KNOW WHERE TO GO. In many states, you will NOT be allowed to vote if you show up at the wrong polling place. Your board of elections can tell you where to vote. Call today to locate your polling place. If you can't reach your board, call 1-866-OURVOTE.

2. BRING PROPER IDENTIFICATION. Proper forms of ID can include a driver’s license, a utility bill or another document that includes your name and address. Make sure the ID matches your address.

3. READ SIGNS AT POLLING PLACES for instructions on how to vote and how to file a complaint if you believe your rights have been violated.

4. REVIEW THE SAMPLE BALLOT BEFORE VOTING. Ballots are often confusing, and their designs can change considerably from election to election. If you have questions about how to vote on your ballot, ask a poll worker or poll monitor for help.

5. CHECK YOUR BALLOT BEFORE CASTING YOUR VOTE. If you are having a problem understanding instructions, or if you just want to make sure you are voting in the correct manner, ask to speak to a poll worker

6. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS CONCERNING “PROVISIONAL BALLOTS.” No voter can be turned away in any state without being allowed to vote. If there is a question about your eligibility, you must be allowed to vote on a provisional ballot, the validity of which will be determined later. But if you are entitled to vote on a regular ballot, you should insist on doing so, since a provisional ballot may be disqualified later on a technicality.

7. KNOW WHERE TO TURN FOR HELP. It is a good idea to bring a cell phone and phone numbers of nonpartisan hotlines such as 1-866-OURVOTE and 1-866-MYVOTE1.

8. BE PREPARED FOR LONG LINES. Try to get to your polling place very early in the morning, or between the before-work and after-work rushes. As long as you are in line before the polls close, you are legally entitled to vote. Do not let poll workers close the polls until you have voted.

PLEASE ANNOUNCE, POST AND DISTRIBUTE
