Respected MCA Members:

We pray to Allah (swt) this letter finds you in good health and high Islamic spirits.

The MCA Elections Committee, by majority decision, has decided to continue to conduct and hold exclusively online voting for the upcoming MCA Election 1444 Hijri (2022-2023). All members will be considered to be absentees in this year’s election and will only be able to vote online

The MCA Elections will take place on Wednesday, August 24 and Thursday, August 25.

  • Online voting:

To ensure that all MCA members can vote via an online ballot, all individual members must have a current, valid, unique email as each ballot will only be sent to the unique email associated with each individual member.  Also, members are encouraged to not opt out of receiving emails from MCA as it will stop them from receiving important email reminders related to elections.
