Give Parolees the Vote in New York

This petition had 135 supporters

New York is one of 30 states that denies voting rights to people on parole. This destructive and unnecessary policy serves to distance formerly incarcerated people from free society and signals to them that they aren't welcome.

Reforms pending before the state legislature would extend voting rights to the formerly incarcerated. Speak up today to encourage New York to take the lead on this critical civil rights issue.
