Yes on Second Chances: Voting Restoration Amendment

Florida

This amendment would restore the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions, except for those convicted of murder or sexual offenses, after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation. 

Florida has an estimated 1.5 million people with prior felony convictions who have been stripped of their voting rights, more than any other state in the country. Florida’s Voting Restoration Amendment would allow people who’ve paid their debt to society to earn back their right to vote, giving them an opportunity for redemption and a chance to be full members of their community.
