Re-enfranchisement for former felons

The fight for voting rights is never done.

Re-enfranchisement for former felons

Punishing voters by restricting their ability to vote after they’ve served their sentence is archaic, excessive, and completely unjustified. Yet, this is what happens in our state. Nebraskans convicted of felonies lose their right to vote for the duration of their sentence – plus an arbitrary two-year waiting period on top of that. This policy, which we strongly support eliminating, has an undeniably nefarious and racist history that continues to have negative effects, with a disproportionate impact on Black and Brown voters.
