Canadian Muslim Vote – The Canadian-Muslim Vote (TCMV) is launching its “Muslim Vote Weekend” campaign on Friday, October 11, 2019, with Get Out the Vote sermons in over 100 mosques across six provinces and territories. The campaign will mobilize Muslim voters to the Advance Polls over the Thanksgiving Weekend. Over 130 “Campaign-in-a-Box” all-in-one, do-it-yourself kits have been sent to volunteers at mosques from Whitehorse to Halifax to educate Muslim voters and bring them to the polls. TCMV Executive Director Ali Manek said, “The Muslim Vote Weekend is one of the ways The Canadian-Muslim Vote is breaking down barriers to voting by getting our community to the polls early and making sure they are registered and educated on how and where to vote. Our campaign volunteers have had a million touch-points with community members this election with the message that we speak the loudest when we vote. Our community survey shows we can expect a higher Muslim turnout this election than the general average.”
