Muslim Voter Registration Up, Group Says

At CNN, Eugene Scott writes, “More than 300,000 Muslims have registered to vote since the 2012 presidential election, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, one of the country’s largest Muslim advocacy organizations.” The council based its estimate on a list of common Muslim names. Scott writes, “In June, the council launched ‘Muslims Vote,’ a non-partisan voter campaign designed to increase Muslim participation in the 2016 election cycle by volunteering, registering to vote and hosting candidate forums among other initiatives.”
