This bill would extend voting rights to nonviolent offenders following their release from jail or prison. Any nonviolent offender who has been on probation for less than a year could vote the day after their probation is over.
Federal prisons and jails would be responsible for notifying inmates when they are allowed to vote in federal elections after being released. If the prisons do not comply with the notification rule they can’t use federal prison funds, period.
Anyone who feels their voter restoration rights have been violated can file a civil action or register a complaint with a local chief election official under this bill.
