As part of Justice For Muslims Collective’s Community Organizing and Empowerment Program, we have been canvassing to get the vote out for Muslim, Arab, South Asian (MASA), and more broadly Asian American communities in Northern Virginia. This election is key for many of our communities, and our communities are part of key congressional districts in Virginia, a swing state. This midterm election will also have implications for the 2020 elections. Therefore, its important for our community members who can vote and are able to go out and vote. Through our door knocking and broader get out the vote activities, people have asked us some reoccurring questions.
We have created this infographic on What You Need To Know About Voting in the 2018 Midterm Elections, with a focus on Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. We have also included links to report voter intimidation and suppression, and a link to knowing you rights if you have a disability.
