Felons' Voting Rights Ballot Question: Florida is one of only three states that bans former felons from voting for the rest of their life. That policy disenfranchises 1.68 million Floridians, including one out of every five African American adults in the state. Floridians could vote to automatically give former felons their rights back, but more than 700,000 signatures are required for the issue to be on the 2018 ballot.
