State level estimates of felon disenfranchisement, 2010 data

Sentencing Project

This report from the Sentencing Project provides state-by-state data about how many individuals have lost the right to vote due to a crazy-quilt pattern of laws that bar people convicted of a felony from voting. Kentucky is one of three states that bars more than 20% of voting age African Americans from voting. A total of 243,842 Kentuckians have lost the right to vote.
