The Right to Vote

This petition had 303 supporters

More than 5 million Americans are denied the right to vote because they have criminal records. Minority groups are disproportionately affected - an estimated 13% of African-American men don't have the right to vote.

Disenfranchisement simply perpetuates a cycle of exclusion for people with criminal records. Those who have paid their debt to society deserve the right to participate in our democracy.

Sign the petition below to tell your Senators and Represenatives that you support the federal Democracy Restoration Act, which would allow people who have on probation or parole, and those who have completed their sentences, to vote in federal elections.
