Piggybacking this off of a Pit thread.
Apparently, the state of Florida requires people to ask permission to vote once they’ve been released from jail. I don’t get that. I can understand not having to right to vote while IN jail, but why on earth would someone need to ask to have his or her civil rights restored after … well, after they’ve all been restored?
As I said over there: Their jail term is over; they’ve done their time. Why do they even need to apply to vote?
