NAACP wants Va. ex-felons’ voting rights restored

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – The local and the national chapter of the NAACP are campaigning to restore the voting rights of former inmates.

Virginia is one of just four states that requires ex-felons to appeal to the governor in order to have their voting rights restored.

Governor McDonnnell has already restored the rights to more than 3,800 ex-felons, the most of any governor to date.

However, that still leaves more than 350,000 people or six percent of the voting age population disenfranchised.
