Voting rights for parolees restored in NY under Cuomo executive order

Voting rights for parolees restored in NY under Cuomo executive order Voting rights for parolees restored in NY under Cuomo executive order

"I'm going to make it law by executive order", he continued. Cuomo noted that 75 percent of parolees in the state are black or Latino and voting restrictions disproportionately impact African American and Hispanic communities.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to bypass the state legislature and grant pardons to more than 35,000 felons on parole making them eligible to vote. "This reform will reduce disenfranchisement and will help restore justice and fairness to our democratic process". The commissioner would continue to submit an updated list each month, with each parolee "given the consideration of a pardon that will restore voting rights without undue delay", according to a draft of the executive order. Two others never remove the right to vote.

This executive order will open the voting booths to more than 35,000 New Yorkers now on parole. These individuals are participants in society at large, despite the limitations placed on them by parole conditions.

The executive order notes that there are now about 35,000 people in NY who have been barred from voting while on parole following a felony conviction.

Those on probation do not lose their right to vote and those doing time for a misdemeanor can vote via absentee ballot. The order allows the special prosecutor to review cases where there is a question whether the civilian was armed and unsafe at the time of his or her death.

"I'm unwilling to take no for an answer, I'm gonna make it law by executive order and I announce that here today", the governor said to a standing ovation.

Cuomo's opponents jumped on the executive order. He said working people were desperate and believed Trump's promises that they would get mills and factories back in the United States. These individuals have been assessed as needing coordinated substance abuse and mental health treatment; job training, placement and skill development; and cognitive behavioral interventions, which are created to help individuals change thinking that contributes to criminal behavior, improve positive motivation and further develop social skills.
