Proposed Constitutional Amendment to Restore the Right to Vote

We expect EX-Felons to pay taxes! We expect EX-Felons to find jobs when released! We expect EX-Felons to become productive and viable members of the community. However, it seems as if Virginia feels that they should not receive their right to vote upon completion of their parole or probation obligations.

There is a process in place to have your right to vote and other civil rights restored, however you must request it! You must be approved!

Non-Violent or Violent felony members may apply if they meet the following criteria:

A resident of Virginia
Have been convicted of a felony in a Virginia Court, a U.S. District Court, or a military court
Have paid all cost, fines, and /or restitution associated with your convictions, and
Not have a conviction for DWI within the past five (5) years immediately preceding this application.

This bill will only permit an EX-Felon to have his-her right to vote and other civil rights restored.

Civil rights restored would only permit an EX- Felon the Right to Vote, run for and hold public office, to serve on juries and to serve as a Notary Public. It will not permit an Ex-Felon to possess or transport any firearm or to carry a concealed weapon.

HOW CAN WE EXPECT OUR EX-FELONS TO BELIEVE IN THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS IF WE REFUSE TO GIVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE IN THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS!

WE EXPECT EX-FELONS TO PAY TAXES AND SUPPORT THE VERY GOVERNING BODY THAT DOES NOT SEEM TO REPRESENT THEIR CONCERNS!

TELL THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY THAT THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND SIGN YOUR NAME TO THIS ONLINE PETITION!

I believe that if a person, who has satisfied his or her debt to society, has paid all fines and has completed parole or probation obligations, they should automatically have their right to vote and other civil rights restored.
