40. So, you know and really appreciate the right to vote and exercise it.. Wish everyone did who

takes it for granted, NBachers.

Gov McAuliffe said there's more to come.. he's "only been in office 11 months.. he's just getting started".

From the link..

"Virginia has historically been among the most restrictive states in the nation in returning civil rights to former offenders, requiring felons to go through a waiting period and a detailed application process even after they have served their time."


And, this..

States Deny Millions Of Ex-Felons Voting Rights

"Four states permanently disenfranchise ex-felons. In Florida, Iowa, Kentucky and Virginia, it takes a decree by the governor or a clemency board to restore a person's voting rights, and only after a predetermined waiting period and all fines and fees are paid can an individual submit an application."

MOre..

Hope this starts a trend, too!
