Get out the vote. It sounds simple enough, but do we really understand the importance of casting a ballot for more than just presidential candidates? While your choice for president is important, it’s even more important to understand that your local officials also implement policies that impact your daily lives, from the streets you drive on to the schools your children attend.

May 24th is a crucial day for Georgia Muslims, as this primary will help decide who appears on the ballot in November for U.S. Congress, State Legislature, and other local positions.

Depending on your county/district, you could also have the ability to vote for the next U.S. Senator from Georgia, every single (contested) House of Representatives seat, State Senators, State Representatives, County Commissioners, Commission Chairman, open Board of Education seats, and judges or justices for the Georgia Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Circuit Courts, and State Courts.

To increase voter turnout and visibility, Georgia Muslim Voter Project and CAIR Georgia are calling upon Georgia Muslims to get the vote early and together on Saturday, May 14th at noon at their nearest county polling station.

And don’t just cast your vote. Let it be known! Take a picture afterward and post it with the hashtag #GAMuslimVoter or send it to We want our officials to know we are directly engaging in ways to better our communities, just as they are.

The great thing about early voting is that you can vote at any polling place in your county! Below is a list of main county elections offices. For more locations, log in to your My Voter Page here.
