AAI leads national efforts to engage, register, and mobilize the Arab American vote. Our year-round #YallaVote campaign works with Arab American community organizations, college campuses, and partners to deliver voter resources into the hands of Arab American volunteers. We also participate in the National Voter Registration Day each September.
If you are interested in hosting a voter registration drive on your campus or in your community, please email Yasmin Hussein for more information and to receive a comprehensive toolkit that includes:
- Voter fact sheets
- Information guides and voter resources
- Registration forms
- Yalla Vote t-shirts, stickers, and posters
To get started, see our #YallaVote prep packet here.
Other helpful AAI resources include demographic handouts on Arab Americans for each of the 50 states and state voter guides from the 2016 election cycle detailing vital issues to our community and candidates up for election in November. These are excellent educational resources to show your representative or other community members what the Arab American community looks like in your state and who is on the ballot.
