2020 Muslim American Voter Turnout Report
This report describes key findings on Muslim American voter turnout during the 2020 presidential elections, and details the impacts of Emgage’s “Million Muslim Votes” campaign.
Muslim Voter Poll
Emgage alongside the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) conducted a unique poll surveying over five hundred Muslim Americans, looking at their views on key domestic and foreign policies, and their views on the Biden administration.
2020 Annual Report
2020 was a truly historic year for Emgage and Muslim American voters. At the beginning of the year, we knew that the Muslim American community was poised to play a significant role electorally. After years of educating, organizing, and mobilizing, we felt that the community was on the cusp of something truly great. This is why we launched the Million Muslim Votes (MMV) campaign, a first-of-its-kind national effort to motivate and turn out at least one million voters in the 2020 general elections. Thanks to the creativity and dedication of our staff, volunteers, board members, and amazing partners, we turned out a historic number of voters and, with it, changed the narrative of Muslim political engagement.
