Voting Rights EO Decision Tree

With information from the Campaign Legal Center's RestoreYourVote.org tool, KFTC has developed a decision tree to use in the field to help people determine if Governor Andy Beshear's Executive Order restoring voting rights to 140,000 Kentuckians applies to them.  Here's a link to the PDF and an image of it is below.

Voting Rights EO Decision Tree

Decision tree to use in the field to help someone determine if Governor Andy Beshear's Executive Order restoring voting rights to 140,000 Kentuckians applies to them.

Big week for Voting Rights last week

Over 36 hours, we had three big voting rights events – a Voting Rights Lobby Day, a Criminal Justice Panel Discussion, and a Press Conference for HB 6.

Voting Rights Lobby Day

In all, we had 34 documented meetings with legislators, 8 lobby teams, and 28 grassroots lobbyists plus the Kentucky Council of Church's great Prayer Day of Action on Voting Rights and 60 UFCW workers there who talked to legislators about HB 6 as a part of their meetings.

Our members built up their confidence in speaking truth to power and we had frustrating and yet valuable conversations with foes and allied legislators alike.

We got a lot done today and we can build on it. Come join us in Frankfort to continue the work!

Restoreyourvote.org

Our allies at the Campaign Legal Center put together a great tool at www.Restoreyourvote.org to help people figure out whether Steve Beshear's Executive Order applies to them.
