CAIR-OK Launches Voter Registration Drive (Aug 23, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Muslim advocacy group in Oklahoma is launching a voter registration drive in an attempt to get the state's estimated 30,000 Muslims more involved in the political process.

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced the drive on Thursday. The group's new Executive Director Adam Soltani says the campaign is designed to provide Oklahoma's Muslims with tools they need to be more engaged and represented in politics.

The ``Voice Your Vote'' campaign will include events in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Stillwater and Edmond during the next month.

Soltani says Oklahoma's Muslim community is composed primarily of two distinct groups - American-born Muslims and those who emigrated from another country.

He says the American-born Muslims traditionally have been more politically active.
