Opportunity to Volunteer for Electoral Activities with CAIR-Chicago

Election Day is November 7, 2006 and CAIR-Chicago is in the middle of lots of electoral work! A fully-fledged, non-partisan campaign has included: outreach to the Muslim youth, outreach to the Muslim community in the Bridgeview area, daily voter registrations, and training sessions for volunteers.

We are now in the Get Out the Vote part of the campaign and are seeking volunteers for the next 5 weeks!

volunteers are needed to commit 4-5 hours a week to do door knocking and phone banking in Bridgeview, before Election Day.

On Election Day:

8 volunteers with cars are needed to commit 6 hours each to drive registered voters to polling locations

poll watchers are needed for 6 hour shifts to monitor polling locations for instances of discrimination

20 volunteers are needed to do door-to-door canvassing and phone banking

This is a great opportunity to get involved in grassroots politics and fulfill your civic duty.

If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Haady Taslim at or CAIR-Chicago Governmental Relations Coordinator Sadiya Ahmed at or at 312-212-1520
