Sentencing Project Article on extending Voting Rights in Prison

VAAC has a long term goal to influence Michigan policy to allow for voting in prison.

Currently Maine, Vermont and Washington DC allow people who are currently incarcerated serving a sentence to vote. Connecticut, Oregon, Illinois, New York and New Jersey are working on legislation  to bring voting to those incarcerated with felony sentences. 

The Sentencing Project works with state and local campaigns to expand voting rights to justice impacted voters and recently provided an update on state legislation and international efforts (Fundacion Proyecto Reinsercion)  to expand voting rights across the Americas.
