- The State of Iowa
- United States of America
The voting laws in Iowa restrict convicted felons from voting. Since 1997, twenty three States have made reforms to their disenfranchisement laws.
Iowa however has gone back and forth on the issue because of their change in state officials. But, no matter which state official is in office, denying convicted felons the right to vote is counterproductive to a successful rehabilitation and reentry into society.
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 reentry. More so, these laws infringe on our civil right to vote.
Tell your state officials that you are voting FOR voting law reforms.
