The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) calls upon fellow citizens who are registered voters to actively participate in the primary elections by voting on Tuesday, August 2, 2016. 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: Michigan Voter Information Center at https://webapps.sos.state.mi.us/MVIC/
AHRC-USA encourages all Michigan residents to cast a smart and informed vote. Election day is our opportunity to participate in the democratic process. AHRC-USA urges fellow citizens to learn about the candidates and their stances on key issues of concern and interests, especially those who openly support human rights and those who embrace diversity and social justice.
“Turnout in primary elections is generally low, and this multiplies the importance of your vote,” stated Dr. Opada Alzohaili, AHRC Board’s President. “I urge every VOTER to exercise such a precious civic duty” continued Alzohaili.
“People should take voting very seriously. Many elections are decided by the narrowest of margins,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. ” Democracy is not a spectator sport. If you don’t vote, you are not part of the democratic process,” continued Hamad.\
