MN House Passes Bill To Restore Voting Rights For Felons
(St. Paul, MN) — The Minnesota House is advancing a bill aimed at restoring voting rights to formerly imprisoned individuals. The bill would return voting rights to people convicted of a felony once they are released from prison. The current law restores voting rights after felons have completed their sentence, including probation. Opponents say the bill wouldn’t stop someone who committed felony voter fraud from voting again.
