Florida voters passed Amendment 4, a constitutional amendment that restores the voting rights to most people convicted of felonies after they complete the full terms of their sentences. It is the single biggest expansion of voting rights since the passage of the 26th Amendment in 1971.
Defending our rights to equality, liberty, and justice
The impact of Amendment 4’s passage will reverberate throughout future elections in Florida, a swing state where elections are often won and lost by tiny margins.
This week’s midterms should send a strong message to the political establishment that when our civil rights and civil liberties are on the line, American voters will step in.
