Advocates to restore the vote are making a final push at the State Capitol. Supporters want lawmakers to allow convicted felons to vote after they’ve finished their prison time even if they’re still on probation. Elizer Darris was incarcerated at the age of 15.

“I pay my taxes, but I’m not able to have any say in whose representing me for those taxes.”

Currently, more than 50,000 Minnesotans are unable to vote due to felony convictions on their record. 13 other states have already passed similar legislation.
