“This is about making history.” The words of a Muslim business owner in Michigan just before a primary election in which three Muslims would occupy the ballot.
The document before you is a simple guide with information on upcoming State Questions. When you go to the polls on November 6th, we want you to be able to make educated decisions. But this is not just about one election cycle. This is about engagement. This is about making history.
Every election year we get to choose tomorrow’s history. State Questions give us the power to decide the laws that will define our future and that of our children and grandchildren. It is imperative that we are informed at the polls and consistent in showing up. We must set an example for future generations. We must tell them and show them their voice matters- that they cannot be silenced unless they do not show up.
In short, this may just be one of many State Question guides you’ll come across this election cycle, but what you do on November 6th is powerful and our mission at CAIR-OK is to empower you in your lifelong journey of engagement and advocacy.
