Do Felons Have The Right to Vote? Prisonpath.com Releases Disenfranchised Voters Infographic.
Over five million Americans are disenfranchised from voting even if the former inmates are again productive members of society who pay taxes. Several states do not restore the right to vote upon completion of the sentence. Thirteen states allow probationers and parolees the right to vote and nineteen states allow former inmates the right to vote upon completion of their sentence. In which category does Florida and Virginia, two highly contested states in this election season fall? Both Florida and Virginia are two of the four states that do not restore the right to vote upon completion of their sentence.
Prisonpath advocates that Felons who have completed their incarcerated sentence, have paid their debt to society, and should have all voting rights fully restored automatically upon release from prison.
