WEBINAR: Voting Rights and Support for People with Felony Convictions

Tuesday, March 31, 11am-12pm

Restoration of voting rights for ex-felons has been in the news recently, especially with the passage of Amendment 4 in Florida in 2018 (and subsequent legal and legislative challenges). But zooming out, we see that across the country there is a confusing patchwork of laws for people who have a felony conviction in their past. A crime committed 20 years ago in one state may bar you from voting in another state. In a couple states (Maine, Vermont) people never lose their right, even during incarceration. Just this month a Texas man waited over 6 hours to vote in the primary election only to find out that, due to his parole, he will not be eligible to re-register to vote until June.

Join Nonprofit VOTE on March 31 at 11am as we learn from Jon Sherman, Senior Counsel at Fair Elections Center about current laws regarding felon re-enfranchisement, where and why laws have changed in the past couple of years, and where you can direct individuals for more information and support. Lending a field perspective will be Samuel Gross, a board member for Revive My Vote, a nonpartisan student organization at William & Mary Law School that helps Virginians regain their right to vote after completing the terms of their incarceration.
