Former Chairwoman of the Washington State Republican Party
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
"The only restriction in this bill [HB1473] appears to be total incarceration. That means anyone under house arrest, out on parole, or individuals who owe restitution to their victims can vote. That is the wrong direction to take the law.
Week two of the Democrats' election reform agenda is to make sure to count as many felon votes as you can!"
