Blocked from the Ballot: Voting Rights in America
Over 6 million U.S. citizens are denied their right to vote due to a prior felony conviction.
During the 2018 midterms, the epicenter of the fight for rights restoration was Florida, where disenfranchisement laws were the harshest in the country.
Floridians had an opportunity to approve a ballot referendum that would automatically restore voting rights to 1.4 million people. If passed, it would be the greatest act of enfranchisement in decades.
