Many Delawareans don’t realize that the state constitution was amended to allow felons to vote without getting a pardon from the governor. This was done about 12 years ago. Currently their voting rights are restored 5 years after the discharge of their sentence unless they had committed certain heinous crimes.
It appears that we can’t be deprived of their valuable input in our elections for that long. The house has passed a constitutional amendment to remove the 5 year requirement. They tried this before in 2009.
