Salaam alaykum, I’m [name] calling from [group name], [description of group].

We are calling Muslims in [state] to urge them to vote on [day of week, month, day]

Are you planning to go vote? Is anyone else in your home planning to vote?

If yes: That’s great. We’re also planning to do a quick exit poll after the election to find out who Muslims in our area voted for. May we call you after the election to ask who you voted for? The information we gather will be kept anonymous.

If no: I hope you’ll consider going to vote. Voting is an important step toward helping the Muslim community protect our civil liberties. Thanks for your time and support. Please remember that Election Day is [day of week, month, day].
