Voting Rights for Ex-Offenders
I'll be attending an event tomorrow organized by TakeAction Minnesota to kick off the campaign to restore voting rights for ex-offenders. It runs from 9am-12pm at New Hope Baptist Church, 712 Burr Street in St. Paul.
The goal of this campaign is to change State law to join thirteen other states in allowing ex-felons to vote after they leave prison, rather than having to wait until they are finished with parole (or "off papers"). To learn more, go here.
