ACLU to Push for Restoration of Voting Rights in Florida

The ACLU is starting a campaign to get a ballot initiative that would restore felons’ right to vote in Florida. Florida is one of few states that continue to bar voting rights after felons have served their sentences, and the ACLU is prepared to spend $5 million on a campaign to change that. Unfortunately for the felons this initiative would help, they can’t vote on it, and they cannot even sign the petition.
