“Florida voters spoke clearly four weeks ago: They restored the right to vote to most convicted felons who complete their sentences,” the Tampa Bay Times reports.
“When it becomes Florida law in five weeks, an estimated 1.2 million felons will be eligible to rejoin the voter rolls. But at a statewide elections conference, it was obvious that confusion and uncertainty still hovers over implementation of Amendment 4.”
“The state announced that it has stopped transmitting documents counties use to remove convicted felons from the rolls. One official said the issue requires more research on how to carry out the will of the people.”
