As part of its "Rock the Muslim Vote" initiative, the Muslim Public Affairs Council will be organizing phone banking efforts in cities across the country as the presidential election enters its crucial last stage.

Volunteers will be calling registered Muslim American voters in the key battleground states of Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania to encourage people to vote, to ensure that they know the location of their polling place, and to inform voters about key issues using MPAC's "Activate 08" election guide. These issues include national security and civil rights, immigration, the economy, the Iraq War, healthcare, and U.S.-Muslim world relations.
