Summary: Over 50,000 Californians still on parole for past crimes are not allowed to vote. Not only is this practice wrong — a person who has served their time should have the same rights as anyone else — but it disproportionately impacts low income Californians and people of color. ACA6 would restore voting rights for people on parole. This proposed amendment passed the Assembly but was not considered by the Senate.
