  • Take Action: Register Your Sangat to Vote!

    August 31, 2018 (New York, NY) - In advance of the midterm elections on November 6th, the Sikh Coalition is organizing a voter registration drive to support ongoing community efforts to register Sikh American voters nationwide.

    As part of the Sikh Coalition’s efforts to increase Sikh civic engagement, it’s as important as ever for Sikhs to exercise the right to vote and remind elected officials that the Sikh community cannot be ignored. For this reason, the Sikh Coalition is launching National Sikh Voter Registration Day on September 23rd and making it known that Sikhs are an essential group that elected officials need to pay attention to.

    “As a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization, the Sikh Coalition has a proud tradition of fighting for Sikh civil rights on all sides of the political aisle,” said Sikh Coalition Executive Director, Satjeet Kaur.  “For 17 years, we have supported and opposed positions and policies from both major political parties, but we have always unanimously endorsed the importance of building Sikh community power.”

    Please email advocacy@sikhcoalition.org to sign up to volunteer and lead a voter registration drive in your gurdwara or community. Once you sign up, we will provide you with the tools and guidance necessary for a successful event and then work with you to promote the event within your community. This support includes a comprehensive voter registration toolkit that will walk you through every step of the process, an easy-to-use voter registration portal, and access to a voter registration webinar we produced.

    “Regardless of your political viewpoint, we must show up at the polls,” said Sim J. Singh, Senior Manager of Policy & Advocacy. “We are aiming for a strong Sikh voter showing across the country to reinforce the rising political power and civic engagement of the Sikh community.”

    National Sikh Voter Registration Day is part of a broad civic engagement campaign that keeps Sikhs involved in the political process. The Sikh Coalition needs YOU to join the growing bench of volunteers who have already committed to helping register sangat members to vote this midterm election season.

    To sign up to host a National Sikh Voter Registration Day drive at your local gurdwara or if you have any additional questions, please email the Sikh Coalition’s policy and advocacy team at advocacy@sikhcoalition.org.
