Court Upholds Gov. Vilsack 's Restoration of Felon Voting Rights
A court in Iowa has upheld Gov. Tom Vilsack's executive order restoring voting rights to felony offenders who have served their sentences.
"The ruling by Judge Darbyshire confirms that the executive order I signed on July 4th was in compliance with the state constitution and that allowing ex-offenders who have discharged their sentence, probation or parole the right to vote is within the authority of the governor's office," Vilsack said in a statement released Friday evening.
