Thumbs up ACLU investing millions of dollars in Florida to restore felon voting right

Quote:
The American Civil Liberties Union, which has stepped up its political engagement as its Trump-era membership has swelled, is getting behind a campaign to end Florida’s felon disenfranchisement law by changing the state Constitution. The decision will put substantial financial and activist resources behind an ongoing campaign to put a “Voter Restoration Amendment” on the November 2018 ballot.

This whole issue should have been cleared up decades ago! Can't believe that a bunch of crabby, fat, old white men are so enamored of their power that they won't let anybody else vote.

I sure hope they can get that passed. Maybe then the people most affected can actually vote on things that affect their lives. I hope elected officials will listen if people that vote keep bringing reform issues to be discussed.
