On October 28, 2004 United Press International reported, "an Islamic group said Thursday it will use buses and phone banks in a statewide 'Get Out the Muslim Vote' campaign across Florida. The Florida office of the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations said the campaign has already begun with action alerts distributed to Florida Muslims, urging them to cast their ballots in early voting. The Muslim civil rights and advocacy group has also designated Friday, the day of Islamic communal prayer, as 'Get Out the Muslim Vote Day.' Registered Muslim voters in Broward and Hillsborough counties will be bussed from area mosques after Friday prayers to early polling stations, CAIR said."
