Most felons would be eligible to vote after they have served their sentences or completed probation. It would not apply to those convicted of treason, intentional killing, sex crimes or bribery. If approved in the Senate, the proposal would then go to the secretary of state.</p> Fri, 17 Feb 2012 15:09:13 +0000 Drew Adams 16962 at http://wkms.org
