Felon Voting Rights
The Kentucky House of Representatives has approved a proposal that would let Kentuckians decide whether to amend the state Constitution to restore some felons' voting rights. The measure by Democratic Representative Jesse Crenshaw of Lexington passed Thursday. 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.
