Islamic Relief USA affirms that the civic engagement of American Muslims is paramount to achieving IRUSA’s goals in providing relief and development around the world. We also bear witness that civic engagement is in line with our values and duties as is prescribed in Islam. We strive to have Muslims in all corners of America be prepared for elections. We believe they will be prepared if they are registered to vote, get educated on the issues that matter to them, and are there on Election Day, ready to cast their vote and encourage others to join them.
Here are some resources you may find helpful as you prepare yourself to register and to vote this upcoming election season.
