Free The Vote

47,000 Minnesotans are unable to vote because of a past criminal conviction--including 10% of all voting age African Americans and 17% of African-American men. Minnesota’s uncommonly long drug sentences mean more people are under correctional control than almost any other state--and lose their vote in the process. It’s time to #freethevote to allow all people in our communities to participate fully in our democracy.

I support a state law restoring the right to vote immediately upon release from incarceration.

    If you have fulfilled your penal sentence term of incarceration, and you are released to rejoin society, I believe you have “Paid Your Debt” and are entitled have your vote reinstated. You have to pay taxes so damn straight you should clearly have the right to vote as any other American citizen, no question!!!

    People serving sentences should not be penalized after their sentence. Restore the vote for all felons!
