MUSLIMS ELECTED IN 2018 GENERAL ELECTIONS (LIST BY STATE)

In this historic election year, 49% of eligible voters voted in the first midterm election ever to have more than 100 million voters. We haven’t had a turnout percent this high since 1966, and you’d have to look all the way back to 1914 to find an election with more than 50% participation.

It was a record year for Muslim involvement, too. The numbers confirm at least 128 American Muslims ran for office in this cycle. Numbers haven’t been that high since 2000 when about 700 Muslims ran, and 153 were elected.

Halim Dhanidina – Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Three

Maimona Afzal Berta – Franklin-McKinley Board of Education
