1.4 million people in Florida are permanently excluded from voting because of a prior felony conviction. Florida is one of only four states with a lifetime ban on voting.
Now is the time to return the eligibility to vote to Floridians who have done their time and paid their debts. These are our family members, friends, and neighbors who have earned the opportunity to participate in and give back to their communities.

Our Stories and Testimonies
Real People Who Earned A Second Chance.
Brett & Mallery's Story
"My story is not unique. I've met hundreds of people with very similar backgrounds and stories of redemption, who have come out the other side better for it."
"Any American who has served his time should be able to vote, and especially veterans who have served their country. Everyone deserves a second chance."
“From the minute I walked through the gate in prison everybody kept telling me, ‘You don’t look like you belong here.'"
"I was wounded in Vietnam in 1967, shot through the chest. I was awarded the Purple Heart. I have been arrested only once during my 40 years in Florida. That happened about 10 years ago, but I still can't vote."
"Our men and women in uniform come back from the battlefield and the number-one priority is making home feel like home again."
"I can’t imagine if I made a mistake and paid my dues that I would lose my vote. I’m still a citizen and so are they. Our ability to vote is our ability to speak in a democratic society."
"The ability to vote…makes it much more likely that returning citizens will become productive members of society and contribute to this country that we all know and love."
