AAI Launches #YallaVote Hotline for Election

Posted by Arab American Institute on October 24, 2016 in Blog
We at the Arab American Institute are doing our part to ensure that Arab Americans are registered, organized, informed and ready to cast their ballots on November 8th (or before in states with Early Voting).
