- United States of America
As of today the voting laws in Iowa restrict convicted felons from voting for life. Since 1997, twenty three states have changed their disenfranchisement laws to allow convicted felons to vote after incarceration and parole/probation is over.
Iowa, however, has gone back and forth on the issue due to change in state officials.
Denying convicted felons the right to vote is counterproductive to a successful rehabilitation and re-entry into society.
Our United States Constitution and its amendments guarantee voting rights to all American citizens.
We, the undersigned, call on the state of Iowa to reform their disenfranchisement laws.
Denying convicted felons the right to vote is counterproductive to a successful rehabilitation and re-entry into society. More so, these laws as is, infringe on our civil right to vote.
Vote yes to voting law reforms.
