“As expected, our democracy is being tested in this moment, and we have an obligation to hold our elected leaders accountable to do everything in their power to make sure every single voter’s voice is counted in every race at every level of the government,” said CAIR’s Director in Maryland Zainab Chaudry. 

The national office of the Washington, D.C.,-based civil rights organization launched an online Voter Complaint Form to provide legal support to those encountering anti-Muslim discrimination or other civil rights violations while voting.

It enabled users to receive assistance in voter registration, discrimination at the polls, ID rules by state, voting locations, denial of entry into polls, or anti-Muslim incidents. 

Muslims who feel that their rights were violated are encouraged to also contact CAIR at 202-488-8787 or civilrights@cair.com.  

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.
