Let People Vote
TAKE ACTION NOW
Tell your state lawmakers: Don't Block the Ballot Box! It's time to restore the right to vote to the thousands of Kentuckians who made a mistake and have served their time. Ask your legislators to support House Bill 232 and permanently restore voting rights to Kentuckians with felony convictions in their past.
Governor Beshear restored voting rights to roughly 175,000 Kentuckians with some past felony convictions by executive order in 2019. This was a step in the right direction, but left nearly 65,000 people behind and could be easily undone by a future governor.
Before this order, Kentucky was one of only two states that permanently barred people with past felony convictions from voting. This disenfranchised approximately 9% of otherwise eligible voters and nearly 25% of African-Americans.
