Kentucky Voting Rights Bill

Kentuckians know that our democracy works best when elections are free and fair. When more of us have a say at the ballot box, we can elect leaders who will stand up for all of us.

In most states, voting rights are respected after someone completes their sentence, if they were ever denied. Kentucky is one of only two states that permanently take the right to vote from everyone with a felony in their past, unless they can navigate the complicated process to get a pardon from the Governor, or go through an expensive process of having their record expunged for a limited number of Class D felons.

We can change that.
