Politics Latest Messages: Where have people gone after leaving transcription..

I had heard that felons could vote once they're out of jail/off probation. - sm for link

It depends on the state. 37 states seem quite reasonable. Either they don't restrict felons voting or they automatically restore it after jail/probation/parole.

Only 13 states restrict voting in some way after release. In many of those 13 states the governor or a judge just has to restore civil rights to the person after they've served their time. It's not automatic, but it still happens.

I suspect the "felons can't vote" stat is more fake news/outrage. Of course, they can't vote while serving time (in most states) they've lost their civil rights during that time.

See link for more info.
