We’re not the only ones talking about Florida’s flawed voter restoration process for felons. Our Florida Phoenix story, written by CD Davidson-Hiers, covered the lack of standards for the Governor and Cabinet’s arbitrary decisions to either restore or withhold felons’ civil rights and includes some pretty weird public questioning by Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis.
Greg Allen with National Public Radio aired a story Thursday about the anxiety which plagues the people who, four times a year, gather to “hear a decision that will affect the rest of their lives.” Folks in Florida will have a chance to vote on the process of restoring felons’ civil rights on Nov. 6, when Amendment 4 to the Florida Constitution is on the ballot.
