A newly proposed amendment to Virginia’s Constitution could remove the barriers for felons to vote entirely.
The proposed amendment, sponsored by Democratic Delegate Marcus Simon of Fairfax, would eliminate the line in the state constitution stating that no felon is allowed to vote unless his or her political rights have been restored by the governor.
State lawmakers have petitioned the supreme court of Virginia to hold Governor Terry McAuliffe in contempt over his recent actions to restore rights to previously convicted felons. The request comes after Governor McAuliffe’s restoration of rights to 13,000 felons in the wake of the Court’s invalidation of April’s blanket restoration order.
The petitioners, led by Speaker William J. Howell, have requested for McAuliffe to show why he should not be held in contempt of that decision, setting up yet another fight over the issue.
