SB 7086     Voting Rights Restoration 

Email or call your STATE Senator and urge that he or she vote NO on SB 7086 at the Senate Rules Committee meeting this Tuesday, 04/23/19, 2:00 pm.

SB 7086     Voting Rights Restoration               This bill is an unconstitutional overreach that restricts the rights of returning citizens to vote after 64% of the electorate voted for passage of Amendment 4. It expands the definition of “completion of sentence,” and allows non-judicial private and government entities to create additional barriers to voting and de facto imposition of poll taxes.
