Election Update

Voting is critical to building our political power, ensuring representation and a responsibility we owe to our community. Muslim Americans are among the least likely to register to vote. Your participation is vital to shaping our state’s future. Join our 2023 #GetOutTheMuslimVote campaign to break down barriers and promote civic engagement. Every vote counts, and your voice matters.

In Tennessee, you must register to vote 30 days before an election. You can register to vote online, in-person or by downloading a registration form and submitting it to your local election commission. To be eligible to vote in Tennessee you:
  • Must be a US citizen.
