If they can't win elections...they try to change the rules

Hillary says: Let felons vote!

In addition to creating a federal holiday for voting, the bill would:

  • Require paper receipts for votes.

  • Authorize $500 million to help states make the changes in voting systems and equipment.

  • Allow ex-felons to vote. Currently an estimated 4.7 million Americans are barred from voting because of their criminal records.

  • Require adoption of the changes in time for the 2006 election.
