Millions of individuals who have been formerly incarcerated for felony crimes are eligible to vote. However, many are not aware of this. This is due to a lack of information that is disseminated.
According to a Marshall Project analysis, “In a handful of key states, no more than 1 in 4 formerly incarcerated people registered in time for the 2020 election”.
In Wisconsin in particular, an automatic restoration of voting rights occurs after the completion of the sentence.
