1.5 million ex-felons get their voting rights back, but should Democrats count on them swinging the state of Florida?

Amendment 4 automatically reinstated the voting rights for people with felony convictions upon completion of their sentences, including prison, parole, and probation. Excluded are those people convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense.

Thanks to a constitutional amendment approved by voters during the midterm elections, convicted felons are now registering to vote in the swing state of Florida.

Amendment 4 was passed as a ballot initiative with nearly 65 percent of the vote, surpassing the 60 percent requirement. The amendment restored the voting rights of convicted felons, with the exception of those who have committed rape and murder. Registration started Tuesday, with many convicts lining up to once again participate in the democratic process.

There are an estimated 1.5 million convicted felons in Florida, making up roughly 10 percent of the state’s population.

Dang with convicted felons making up 10% of the population of the state, maybe they should call themselves the “Convict State”. Remind me to never move there… Scratch Florida from any consideration of being the state we will retire to.

The democrat party, run by criminals for criminals. How many rapists and murderers in Florida were offered pleas to lesser crimes so that the State Attorney could get a quick conviction? How many untested rape kits are there sitting just waiting to be tested? What a travesty of justice.
