Today, September 24, 2019, Arab Americans across the country are taking part in National Voter Registration Day, with the goal of getting as many voters registered as possible.
Working with the official National Voter Registration Day effort, and partners like the League of Women Voters and Rock The Vote, AAI’s #YallaVote campaign is coordinating with more than 30 local community partners on the ground who are registering people and raising awareness about the upcoming national elections. Arab American community organizations, centers, small businesses, student groups and places of worship are hosting registration drives outfitted with their #YallaVote swag and National Voter Registration Day voter education materials. From California to New Jersey and Washington, DC to Florida, YallaVote volunteers are registering Arab Americans and many others in their local communities.
If you or your group is hosting an upcoming voter registration drive, debate watch party or voter education event, use the hashtag #YallaVote to share your efforts with others. If you are interested in joining the #YallaVote campaign and hosting a registration drive or any other voter education effort, please contact Heba Mohammad.
