“I believe that the progress of democracy in our world is fundamentally linked to improving the quality of human life.”
- His Highness the Aga Khan, Athens Democracy Forum, 2015

As American Ismaili Muslims we have the duty and privilege to be civically engaged members of our communities. This November, we will have the opportunity to vote for our representatives and on critical issues to ensure that our voices are heard. By voting for candidates, ballot measures and propositions, we are not only exercising our right but are also strengthening our democracy. Registering to vote and casting our ballots allows us to fulfill our responsibility to be civically engaged for ourselves, our communities, and our nation.

The Jamati Institutions hope to provide our Jamat the information and resources they need to vote as well as be civically engaged. Below, find information on how to register to vote and find your polling place, request an absentee ballot, and make your plan to vote.

If you have questions or need assistance registering to vote, please call or text our National Voter Registration Hotline at ‪(202) 854-8683‬.
