Restore Voting Rights for Ex-felons

If you have served your time, your debt is paid. I will sponsor a constitutional amendment to return the right to vote to citizens who have served their time. As your representative, I will sponsor a constitutional amendment to give ex-felons the right to vote. Prison is a place where people are given the opportunity to put aside who they used to be and reform themselves into citizens again. In short, it is a place to pay a debt. Once one is released from prison, that debt is paid, and they should again receive both the obligations and rights of citizenship. Ex-felons must be re-enfranchised.
