Ronnie have you considered getting an expungement this will return your right to vote along with sealing your records.

Jennifer L Smith-Clark Records are always available to police. When the police are corrupt the older records influence and result in added charges. They're never really expunged, in my opinion.

No Ronnie, you blew it by endangering the lives of the public. Be a good boy and keep paying your taxes, you've lost your freedom to vote purely by your own idiotic actions.

John, but people who are Felons can be President of the United States. So your one who loved voting for a known idiotic Felon of a President, President George W. Bush Jr.

Ronnie run for President. President George W. Bush was a convicted felon on DWI. He also had to get a waiver to hold a security clearance.

This is another effort I can sign! The disenfranchisement of so many people who have done their bit, and are otherwise productive members of society should be able to fully participate in that society.

DUI's aren't felonies, people, in ANY state. They don't affect your right to vote.

You would be wrong Michael, the first one is not a felony. #2 and on are felonies. So yes a DUI CAN be a felony charge depending on how many you acquire.

SURE it didn't happen Stephen. Sounds like a boo hoo story to me.
Be a good boy and pay taxes and take your punishment on the chin. That's what real men do.

Travis and John, you are being very rude! Many people are falsely convicted. Some have served decades in prison and finally been cleared. I can't say whether Stephen was guilty or innocent, but it is entirely possible he was indeed innocent. It is totally illogical tha they are not permitted to vote. If someone is a citizen, they have the right to vote, period. What really sucks is how they can't get jobs. Some are basically forced back into crime to survive. It's unacceptable. Something...

I'm so proud of you for sharing this petition! There's much more to it than is presented; I will place that documentation here in comments as time permits; I'll share it on CAPS, and shout it from the roof tops. I'll explain how CAPS started a coast to coast prisoner/inmate voter registration campaign between 1982-84, how we registered thousands inside; and how this campaign could do the same with an 8 to 15 million voting block. Now I'll share it on CAPS. Thanks for sharing with me, Leigh-Anne...

Thanks Ronnie! I served my time, am a small-business owner, taxpayer, and am of service to my community on my fellows on a daily basis. My vote should count as well!

If your a liar or a thief you don't rate very high in society but after 10 years I feel you should be allowed to vote and become a citizen again. If you are a 3 time felon you should just be stoned to death. Everyone deserves a second chance. Any one convicted of a felony that was possession of Marijuana should have their record cleared after probation as the law states.

If you're a career criminal...then I can understand not being able to vote. However...there IS... people that have only been convicted of a felony ONCE and used the intelligence to create businesses and become 'financially secure. They've had family's and now have a solid foundation under there feet!! Let them vote!!

What was Clinton's felony? Bush may not have committed a felony, but he most definitely was the MOST STUPID president. He was also not legitimately president.

Wrong. Clinton's trouble was in Civil Court, not criminal. He is not a Felon.
