Florida voters will see 12 amendments on the ballot Nov. 6.  One of them is amendment 4, and it is one of the most important. Amendment 4 would restore the voting rights of felons after they have paid their debt to society. Currently, there are between 1.3 and 1.5 million people who could have their rights restored if this amendment is passed. Studies show that restoration of rights has a positive effect on society as past felons feel that they are part of the community and are whole once more.  Amendment 4 would not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses. Those people would still have the opportunity to apply to the Governor and the Cabinet to see if their rights could be restored. Currently, Florida is only one of four states that does not automatically restore rights to former felons.
