I’m working on a political science question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Discussion Question: This week, one of the topics is the expansion of the franchise. This article looks at states providing ballot access to former felons, including Florida. Discuss what at least three states have done (or not done) to enfranchise those previously incarcerated. What have voters and legislatures/governors done on these issues? In other words, where have voters expanded suffrage and where have state legislatures and governors done the same? Please reference the articlE. https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/blogs/stateline/2021/06/01/more-states-expand-the-ballot-to-previously-incarcerated
