STATEMENT: Gillum Questions Scott’s Delays on Rights Restoration

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement today:

“The Governor should stop complaining about having to change the rights restoration process in a matter of weeks. People who have paid their debt to society often have to wait years to finally get their voting rights restored under this Jim Crow-era system. It’s time for Florida to finally join the rest of the country with a modern system that lets people exercise their right to vote.”
