GIVE FLORIDIANS A SECOND CHANCE
Americans believe in second chances. We need to make sure that Florida Law does too. Nearly 1.5 million people in Florida are permanently excluded from voting because of a prior felony conviction. Florida is one of only four states that still has a system that excludes so many people from voting. These are our family members, friends, and neighbors who have already repaid their debts to society. Now is the time to restore the ability to vote to Floridians who have earned the opportunity to participate in and give back to their communities.
WHAT THE VOTING RESTORATION AMENDMENT DOES
This amendment would return the ability to vote to people with prior felony convictions.
- People must fully complete all terms of their sentence, including probation and parole, before they earn back their right to vote.
- The Amendment doesn’t apply to people who’ve committed murder or sexual offenses.
People from all parties and walks of life support this amendment, including law enforcement, religious groups, and people working to build stronger communities across Florida.
Thousands of grassroots volunteers are already laying the groundwork for an energetic and strategic campaign to restore the ability to vote to nearly 1.5 million Floridians. OUR VOLUNTEERS ARE THE HEARTBEAT OF THIS CAMPAIGN.
