1.5M Felons Denied Right to Vote

1.5M Felons Denied Right to Vote

This is way, way, WAY more important than a paper trail:

"Felony disenfranchisement laws vary significantly across the country. Persons who are excluded from voting include people currently serving a felony sentence in prison or on probation or parole, as well as persons in 14 states which disenfranchise convicted persons even after completion of sentence."

Dirproportionately young, poor, black... and Democratic.
