FL. VOTER RESTORATION FOR NON-VIOLENT OFENDERS

In HOT BUTTON TOPIC, Politics, THE PEOPLE'S NEWS, WORD ON THE STREET on September 12, 2008 at UTC.50.30.

Governor Charlie Crist’s Executive Order

*Require a voter-registration application to be included in every Restoration of Civil Rights Certificate mailed from the Parole Commission.

*Make publicly accessible a redesigned Florida Parole Commission Web site to let felons look up and print a copy of their restoration certificate.

*Provide on the Web site a direct link to the Division of Elections’ voter-registration Web site.

“I believe that government should explore every opportunity to ease the notification process and provide as much information about restoration of civil rights,” Crist said in a statement. “The changes made today will allow ex-offenders to immediately register to vote and participate in the democratic process.”

“Still, had the governor acted sooner, “thousands more Floridians would have benefited,” said Muslima Lewis, a lawyer and director of the Racial Justice and Voting Rights Projects for the ACLU in Miami.”
