More than one million of former felons in the state of Florida will be able to register to vote beginning this Tuesday, when the Voting Restoration Amendment 4 takes effect.

There has been a lot of preparation and anticipation for implementation.

Sara Latshaw has been looking forward to this day on behalf of the many individuals in the state who were excluded from the election process due to their felony convictions and were kept out long after completion of their sentences.
