Leading up to November 3, 2020, Americans across the country will participate in our national election–not just by voting for president, but also choosing among governors, federal- and state-level legislators, city-level officials, ballot measures, and more. Have you made your plan to vote yet?

The Sikh Coalition is working to ensure that all Sikh Americans make their voices heard with our 2020 “Get Out The Vote” (GOTV) effort. Click each banner to learn more about ways to get involved!

Use our free Civic Action Center, powered by Phone2Action, to check your voter registration, look up your polling place, and read about candidates and election rules in your area.

Thank you to the more than 120 sevadaars who turned out to help us call more than 15,000 Sikh voters in 9 key “swing” states with critical, nonpartisan election information! To learn more about the scope of this work, click the banner above.

More Americans are likely to vote by mail this year due to concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. View our map detailing every state’s different deadlines and procedures for requesting and returning your ballot (including secure drop-off options).

Our 2020 public policy brief, entitled Combating Bias, Bigotry, and Backlash: Sikh American Civil Rights Policy Priorities, presents a specific series of Sikh civil rights policy prescriptions regarding hate crimes, employment discrimination, creating safer schools, protecting religious rights, and reforming immigration and detention policies. It has been sent to the Biden and Trump campaigns, and will be used for outreach to congressional campaigns in the coming months.
