HAVE YOU BEEN CONVICTED OF A FELONY?
ARE YOU OFF OF PROBATION AND PAROLE? YOU CAN VOTE!
Louisiana has the highest rate of incarceration in America, and the most families directly impacted by criminal convictions in America. These families live in communities that are systematically stripped of the most essential pillar of democracy: voting rights.
The Louisiana constitution allows the state to suspend voting rights to anyone "under order of imprisonment" until the order ends. The legislature later passed a law making this mandatory, and defines "order of imprisonment" to include prison, parole, or probation. There are currently 45,000 people in prison, and 71,000 people living in the community under community supervision.
Many who get 'off paper' do not know they can vote.
