Gov. Beshear Restores the Voting Rights of 180,000+ Nonviolent Felons in Kentucky
Kentucky is one of the few states that does not automatically restore voting rights to felons after they have completed their sentence.
Outgoing Governor Beshear, in a fine act of statesmanship, signed an executive order to restore voting rights to more than 180,000 nonviolent felons.
This is a good day for democracy.
