American Muslims have political clout, in swing states in the Presidential election, and in numerous state—and local—level elections. But are we as socially crucial as we are politically? Why should we be engaged and informed voters? What issues do we need to know more about to make an informed decision in November? In a unique partnership between Altmuslim at Patheos, Altmuslimah, Illume and other writers and bloggers will explore these issues and more to promote civic engagement and improve the media coverage and public understanding of American Muslims. Keep checking this page for articles in the run-up to the 2012 Elections.
