Thumbs down 1.4 million former felons can now vote in Florida

Tuesday will mark an extraordinary milestone for Florida as the right to vote is restored to more than 1 million former felons in the state.

Most ex-felons in the state who have completed the terms of their sentence, including parole and probation, can register to vote either online or at their local elections office beginning Jan. 8. The measure doesn't apply to those convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense. (The only good thing thing they included.)

Florida is the largest U.S. state to not automatically restore voting rights to most felons who've completed their sentence. But Floridians overwhelmingly voted to change this in November when they passed Amendment 4 with 64 percent of the vote. Some 1.4 million voters could be added to the state's rolls thanks to the amendment.

There has been some confusion as to whether the amendment would take effect Tuesday after Republican lawmakers, including Gov.-elect Ron DeSantis (R), suggested it be put on hold until the state legislature reviews its language.

Organizers behind the amendment have insisted, however, that it is self-executing and neither the governor nor lawmakers may alter it.

Exactly why it's been voted in. Sad rman to see these moochers learned how to manipulate the government. God Bless America, Donald Trump is our only hope and they are beating his a$$ into the mud!
