More felons given the right to vote
The governor said only four other states--Alabama, Florida, Kentucky and Virginia--prohibit felons from voting after completing their sentences.
"We're here today to talk about justice," Vilsack said. "When you've paid your debt to society, you need to be reconnected to society."
Vilsack said he will sign the measure July 4 with the symbolism of Independence Day.
Under the order, convicted felons who complete their sentence and parole would have voting rights automatically restored.
Vilsack emphasized that the order will not restore the right to carry a gun or ease any financial obligations to victims. . . .
