  • Say Yes to Second Chances: Florida and the Restoration of Voting Rights For Convicted Felons - Law
    offenders upon the completion of their sentence All convicted felons must now apply for Executive Clemency after a five or seven year waiting period to regain their right to vote Across the nation voting rights for convicted felons vary greatly Even in states where ex offenders automatically regain the right to vote upon completion of their sentence the process of re registering to vote is often difficult The restoration process is often complex and requires lengthy paperwork onerous documentation and the involvement and coordination of several state agencies Additionally in states where ex felons voting rights are automatically restored many ex offenders are not aware that they regained their voting rights In states where ex offenders must apply to get their rights back they are not informed of the process for regaining their rights or offered assistance to do so Individuals who have paid their debt to society deserve a second chance and should be allowed to have their voices heard throughout the elections process Currently there is legislation pending in Congress that would restore voting rights in federal elections to persons with felony convictions The Voter Empowerment Act H R 12 would allow individuals with prior felony convictions to vote in federal elections In Florida civil rights and voting rights groups are working to change the Florida Constitution to allow people who have been convicted of a felony to vote after completing their sentences including probation The Florida Restoration Coalition led by Desmond Meade an FIU College of Law Alumni has circulated petition forms proposing an amendment to the Florida Constitution stating Any disqualification from voting arising from a felony conviction shall terminate and voting rights shall be restored upon completion of all terms of sentence including parole or probation This automatic restoration would not apply to individuals convicted
