The 2022 election cycle presents the American Muslim community with an important opportunity to increase its political capacity and presence.

The Voter Guide is a biennial resource provided by CAIR-CA to community members as they prepare to vote in State, Congressional, and/or Presidential Elections. The goal of this resource is to encourage informed civic engagement and educate community members on the issues, votes, and outcomes prior to the 2022 Midterm elections. The guide does so by reflecting the voting history of all California State and Congressional elected officials from 2021-2022 via scorecards and providing summaries of ballot propositions.

CAIR-CA has compiled three resources to help guide community members as they plan to vote in the upcoming elections. Inside this guide, you will find the:

  • Congressional scorecard;
  • State legislative scorecard; and
  • Statewide proposition guide.

A scorecard is an illustration that reflects the voting performance of California representatives from Congress and the state legislature. The scorecards are intended to provide a general profile to assist voters in better understanding the attitudes of elected officials toward key civil rights issues. As the amount of legislation introduced in Congress and the state legislature is rather expansive, please note that elected officials should not be judged by these criteria alone.

Please contact your local CAIR-CA office if you have any questions or want to get involved with our various civic engagement efforts.

Note: As a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization, CAIR-CA makes no claims as to the favorability of one candidate over another; however, we encourage voters to further research the actions of their legislators before supporting any candidate. CAIR-CA is able to encourage American Muslims to engage in the election process, conduct voter registration training programs, issue briefings, host candidate forums, educate the community on issues, take positions on legislation, and lead get-out-the-vote drives.
