CAIR-Chicago Mobilizes Muslim Voters for Primary Election


March 21, 2006

CAIR-Chicago mobilizes voters in closely contested third congressional district primary elections

(Chicago, IL 3/21/2006) - The Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago) has mobilized Muslim voters to actively participate in today's primary election in Illinois.

CAIR-Chicago made nearly 800 phone calls, reaching out to registered voters in the third congressional district, as a part of a large "Get Out the Vote" campaign.

Volunteers have been making phone calls over the weekend and weekday nights, reminding constituents that their votes in this upcoming election are vital.

Today, CAIR-Chicago volunteers knocked on close to 150 doors in the third congressional district, reminding voters to cast their ballots.

"We want all eligible members of the Muslim community to cast their ballots, regardless of which candidates they vote for," said CAIR-Chicago Governmental Relations Coordinator Sadiya Ahmed.

Ahmed noted that the third congressional district is one of the most hotly contested races in the Illinois primary elections and of concern to the Muslim community. The district houses one of the largest mosques in the Chicago metropolitan area, as well as one of the nation's largest Muslim communities.
