[Michigan- Monday, August 4, 2014]: The American Human rights Council (AHRC) calls upon fellow citizens who are registered voters to actively participate in the primary elections by voting on Tuesday, August 5, 2014.
This is our opportunity as a community to participate in the democratic process and to support and elect candidates of our choice who address issues of importance to our community.
AHRC advocates for the protection of civil rights, civil liberties and human rights at home and abroad. AHRC hopes that in choosing the candidates to support, the community considers the position of the candidates on balanced policies that uphold justice, freedom, liberty and peace for all.
Voting is a key opportunity to let our voice be heard. It is not possible to overstate the importance of turnout. Indeed, as every vote counts, the AHRC urges every voter to vote and be part of shaping our common future. Human rights are an integral part of our society and voting is one way to advance it.
“Turnout in primary elections is generally low, this multiplies the importance of your vote” stated AHRC board member Dr. Saleh Muslah. “We urge all to get out and vote. Every vote counts” continued Dr. Muslah.
Please be advised that Voting Polls will open at 7:00 AM and will remain open until 8:00 PM. For any assistance regarding the location of your polling post, please visit: www.michigan.gov/vote.
