Give Floridians a Second Chance.
Florida’s Voting Restoration Amendment would allow people who’ve paid their debt to society to earn back their right to vote.
Exactly two people in Florida are stopping this from happening: Governor Scott and Attorney General Bondi!
- It’s not in the Florida Constitution.
- It’s not an act passed by the Florida legislature.
Governor Scott and Attorney General Bondi could remedy this tomorrow — but they won’t. They’re determined to keep people from voting who are likely to vote Democratic! And former felons are very likely to vote Democratic.
We need your help to override Governor Scott’s immoral stonewalling!
Floridians believe in second chances. Restoring a person’s right to vote once they’ve fulfilled their obligations to society gives them an opportunity for redemption and a chance to be full members of their community.
What the Voting Restoration Amendment Does
- Florida is one of only three states with a lifetime ban on voting. The Amendment modernizes Florida’s criminal justice rules by bringing our state in line with others nationwide.
- People must fully complete all terms of their sentence, including probation and parole, before they earn back their right to vote.
- The Amendment doesn’t apply to people who’ve committed murder or sexual offenses.
- The amendment stops Governor Scott’s immoral stonewalling.
Supporters — Law enforcement, faith leaders, employers, and a large majority of Floridians from all walks of life support people being able to earn back their right to vote because it gives them a stake in the community and makes it less likely they will end up back in prison.
