Local elections 2008
The Muslim Council of Britain initiated a range of initiatives to raise awareness and encourage British Muslims to vote. The MCB has worked with the Electoral Commission in a campaign to persuade Mosques and Islamic associations to initiate voter registration. The MCB has also worked with a range of faith and non-faith bodies to encourage voting and to raise local issues.
This website gives an overview of MCBís work in Spring 2008.

Welcome to the Muslim Council of Britainís Vote Centre. This site is a platform and guide for British Muslims for the forthcoming elections.
The MCB is a non-partisan body that does not endorse any one political party.† It does, however, seek to facilitate discussion and inform the debate.
Importantly, the MCB encourages Muslims to fully participate† in Britainís† democratic traditions and exercise their vote. www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
