VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED: REGISTER TO VOTE TODAY!

Living in a country that is known as ‘world’s oldest democracy’, the term voting takes a whole new meaning. It not just entails going out and voting for the candidate you like or the values you live by. It means carrying on the legacy of the men and women who fought to death to get this right. It means upholding equality of law and freedom for all. It means doing your part in taking the country towards a direction you wish for it to take. It means securing the future of generations to come. It means setting examples for others to follow. It means being the change. 

Muslim communities across the US have braved many ups and downs and have come a long way in strengthening their ground. But there are many miles to be covered and that may only be possible if they actively participate in civic life to pave the way for favourable policy making.

Using the right to vote is key in this struggle. October 5th was the initial deadline but it has now been extended to October until 7PM owing to the site crash on Monday. So there is still time to register. 

Here are some of the resources and sites that you can visit to register to vote and choose how you wish to vote:
