One of the most jarring realizations of my (then) young life was when I was doing some GOTV door knocking in the late 90s and had A LOT of people tell me, "I can't register to vote, I'm a felon."

MT now allows returning citizens the vote, but plenty of states don't. Welcome to democracy American-style 😕

@GuerillaOntologist @denikombucha I am pleased to say that in Florida we recently passed something allowing felons to vote. I firmly believe the for profit prison system is the just about to only one who doesn't want these people voting.
