Muslim Voter Registration Up, Group Says

posted on June 22, 2016

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.”
