We can’t vote here in FL with a felony conviction. Among other civil rights denied as well. Florida has one of the most punitive disenfranchisement policies in the country, permanently barring all citizens with felony convictions from voting unless they individually apply to the state Office of Executive Clemency for rights restoration ( which can take years) and it’s not guaranteed either.

This is a pretty good article to read if you want to know what’s going on in FL right now with the subject.
