On October 16, 1999, The Houston Chronicle reported that eight American Muslim and Arab groups are cooperating on a voter drive for next year's presidential election. The American Muslim Council, which launched the voter drive last month, teamed up with the Arab organizations to try and get all Arabs - Muslim, Christian, or other religious affiliation - registered to vote. The drive has thus far taken place in mosques, schools, and community centers across the nation.
