Restore Voting Rights

House Bill Number: 

House Bill 6 would amend the Kentucky Constitution to restore voting rights to those who have a felony conviction once their sentence is completed. It would send the amendment to Kentucky voters for ratification.

KFTC HB 6 Handout

Bill Sponsor(s): 
C. Booker, C. Stevenson

This bill is a clean version of the Voting Rights bill with no exclusions based on the kinds of felonies. Everyone gets their right to vote after they’ve completed their prison time, probation, and/or parole. KFTC is working to restore voting rights for folks who have a felony conviction in their past without exception. 

A problematic version of a voting rights bill, Senate Bill 62, has begun moving in the Senate.
