Impact of Muslim voters at the 2024 election was bigger than you think

The UK General election takes place on Thursday July 4 2024, we would like to emphasise the importance of civic engagement and democratic participation.

We have worked with civil society, as well as leading community voices to encourage greater participation of Muslim communities in the electoral process. We have seen just how much that matters today, with the dire situation ongoing in Gaza, Palestine, heightened Islamophobia and pressures from the cost of living crisis.

We strongly believe that every eligible member of our congregation should exercise their right to vote, as it is a crucial means of making our collective voice heard and shaping the future of our community and the nation. WLIC stradles three important constituencies, Ealing Southall, Ealing North and Ealing Central & Acton, with a combined electorate of some 225,000 people, of which Muslims constitute approximately 40,000 voters. See below for a list of local husting events taking place in the coming weeks, please consider attending these to meet and question the candidates for yourselves.

There is no room for apathy, make informed decisions and ensure your voice is heard. On election day, we urge you to cast your vote and make a meaningful contribution to the direction of our country. You’ll need to show a photo ID when voting in person.

Your vote is a powerful tool to advocate for the issues that matter most to our community, such as social justice, inequality, healthcare, crime, housing, the decline in living standards and religious freedom. We also kindly request that you encourage your family members, friends, and neighbours to participate. By working together, we can amplify our collective voice and create a more inclusive, just, and prosperous society for all.

As a faith community, we have a responsibility to actively engage in the democratic process and work towards positive change. Let us seize this opportunity to be heard and to shape the future of our community.
