As the demographics shift in key battleground states, political experts predict that minorities such as Muslims, Latinos, Hispanics and blacks determine the outcome of the election. Grassroots faith-based organizations — including churches, mosques, and temples — have been harnessing the power of their communities to "get out the vote" and to ensure they are counted in the census. Now, COVID-19 and a burdened postal service have only furthered that challenge, forcing groups to reimagine their strategies and adjust their respective policy agendas.
