As we look for every vote, there may bemore votes among released felons in our community than we realize.  Rather than cast a negative pale on these citizens, there are opportunities for many of them to cast their votes and let their voices be heard.  We should not overlook this opportunity to invite participation in this election as a part of our community outreach.

Each state has different requirements, and I have attached a report with the details.  Don't overlook this segment of your community.  Every voice, and every vote counts.
