Washington state to restore voting rights for people on parole and probation
The Washington state Senate has approved a bill to automatically restore voting rights to convicted felons on probation or parole. The bill is expected to be signed by Governor Jay Inslee, ensuring that every state citizen who is not incarcerated can vote.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
