In North Carolina, a Rush to “Restore Hope in the Vote” in People with Felony Convictions

A Superior Court ruling in North Carolina restored voting rights to people with felony convictions who are no longer in prison, giving up to 56,000 residents the opportunity to return to the ballot box. Organizations participating in the "Unlock Our Vote" movement are working to connect with and register disenfranchised voters, and people who have been re-enfranchised say reclaiming their rights has given them new hope that they can help effect change.
