Why 6.1 Million Americans Will Be Kept from Voting

from RT America

The Sentencing Project just released a new report about all the people in America who have been disenfranchised from the vote because they’ve been convicted of a felony at some point in their lives. They found that 6.1 million Americans won’t be able to vote in this gross election because they’ve had a felony conviction. That’s more than double the number from just 20 years ago.
