In the United States, only 2 states have unrestricted voting rights for felons. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia allow voting after sentence of incarceration has been completed. Four states do not restore the right to vote until after incarceration and parole. Nineteen states require the felon to complete a term of incarceration, a term of parole, AND a term of probation before being eligible to vote. Twelve U.S. states may never return voting privileges to convicted felons.
Yes, people make mistakes. However, many people are able to turn their lives around. Furthermore, felons live in the same community as the rest of us. As United States citizens, felons are unconstitutionally being denied their right to vote. Help raise awareness and give humans the rights they deserve!
We will be sending our petition to the Senators and bring this issue to light!
