Yalla Vote 2012

AAI and our Yalla Vote partners and volunteers did tremendous work in 2012: we reached thousands of Arab American voters in the lead up to the election to help them register, most importantly, kept them informed and motivated to vote.

Post-Election Roundup

We have created a comprehensive post-election roundup with a list of Arab American candidate results and analysis on the important issues pertaining to Arab Americans from the 2012 election cycle.

State-by-State Voter Guides & Information

AAI created state-specific Yalla Vote Guides and Delegate Guides for each of our key states, providing detailed information for residents of those states with the highest concentrations of Arab Americans. Just click on your state below to see our 2012 voter guides. We also provided information about voter registration deadlines and requirements, polling locations, state parties, how to become a delegate, local candidates, debates, and more.
