Disenfranchised Voters Infographic

Elections have consequences for all of us, but there are Americans, who are not allowed to vote. Almost six million Americans are disenfranchised from voting, even if the former inmates are again productive members of society, who pay taxes. Only states decide who can vote–not the Federal government. There are states, who do not restore the right to vote even,  upon completion of the sentence. Three states allow probationers and parolees the right to vote, and twenty states allow former inmates, the right to vote upon completion of their sentence. It is time to restore the right to vote to all Americans.
