With the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Welcome to the Get Out & Vote! website.
Our aim is to encourage British Muslims to participate fully in the forthcoming General Election, likely to be held on Thurs May 6th 2010.
This Election is shaping up to be a close contest, with a hung parliament being a real possibility for the first time in decades. Given over half the British Muslim population lives in just 50 parliamentary seats, within which they form over 20% of the population, the Muslim vote matters. It may even be pivotal in determining which party emerges with the most seats overall.
Accordingly, Get Out & Vote! have contacted all the main candidates in each of these 50 seats to ask them their views on key issues which are of importance to many Muslim voters. Click here for a list of these issues, and scroll down the right side of this page for a link to each of these 50 seats where you can read candidate answers.
