You do not have a right to vote in a Federal Election. As long as States do not violate 14th, 15th, 19th, and 26th Amendments States can enact laws, which prevent people from voting, such as convicted felons.
Alabama - Some persons convicted of a felony may apply to have their vote restored immediately upon completion of their full sentence. Those convicted of certain felony offenses such as murder, rape, incest, sexual crime against children, and treason are not eligible for re-enfranchisement.
Delaware - On April 16, 2013 the Delaware Senate passed the Hazel D. Plant Voter Restoration Act in a 15-6 vote. The act amended the Delaware Constitution by removing the five year waiting period for most felons to regain the ability to vote. Persons convicted of a felony (with some exceptions) are now automatically eligible to vote after serving their full sentence including incarceration, parole, and probation.
Exceptions: Persons convicted of murder or manslaughter, a felony offense against public administration involving bribery, improper influence or abuse of office, or a felony sexual offense, remain permanently disqualified from voting.
Kentucky - The ability to vote can be restored only when the Governor approves an application for an executive pardon from an individual convicted of a felony after completion of his/her sentence.
Tennessee - All persons convicted of a felony since 1981, except for some serious felonies such as murder, rape, treason and voter fraud, may apply to the Board of Probation and Parole for voting restoration upon completion of their sentence.
Al, have you been told if the premiums will increase for next year?
Here is what happens when out government over legislates laws and regulations. Honest people become criminals.
USA vs YOU: Federal Government Unfairly Targets Maryland Father
Al, over regulation by the EPA is killing job growth.
In regards to ObamaCare do you currently offer health insurance to your employees?
Will you offer or continue to offer health insurance to your employees in 2014?
Al, Harry Reid has refused to bring 15 House bills that dealt with jobs to the Senate floor for a vote.
With each day we are finding out more and more on how much of a disaster ObamaCare is and the Democrats will pay for that in 2014.

Yet it appears he is not holding any of these “handlers” accountable. In fact they have been promoted or sit at home on paid leave.
Unlike several of his former Inspector Generals who were either fired or did not have their contract renewed or left out of frustration.
There are six Inspector General Positions open , which Obama appears to be in no hurry to fill. These opening are in The Department of Homeland Security, DOD, Interior, Labor, State and the Agency for International Development. I’m sure you are aware the IG audits operations to find mismanagement and criminal activity and take a look at what has recently surfaced in the State Department with allegations of State Department employees sleeping with prostitutes.
IG Inspector Walpin was fired after he brought to the attention of Obama that Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson was misusing an AmeriCorp Grant. Turns out Johnson and Obama are a good friends.
Other IG’s who have left their positions, which include Amtrak’s Fred Weiderhold Treasury special IG Neil Barofsky, and International Trade Commission IG Judith Gwynn all left their positions after Obama was not please with their findings.
For a President who promised the most transparent presidency, it appears it has been anything but transparent.

All we hear is how intelligent Obama is and yet he never knows anything about anything.
I believe Obama did know, but if he didn't as you believe then why wasn't he told when the IRS apologized to the Treasury Department?
Does anyone believe Eric Holder and his Justice Department would prosecute a Muslim owned bakery if they refused to make a wedding cake for a gay or lesbian couple?
BW4 , you mention nitwits like McCain and Graham but you forgot to mention Billy Jefferson (BJ) Clinton said the following while speaking with McCain at an event this past Tuesday:
“You just think how lame you’d be … suppose I had let a million people, two million people be refugees out of Kosovo, a couple hundred thousand people die, and they say, ‘You could have stopped this by dropping a few bombs. Why didn’t you do it?’ And I say, ‘because the House of Representatives voted 75 percent against it?’” Clinton said. “You look like a total wuss, and you would be.”
“If you refuse to act and you cause a calamity, the one thing you cannot say when all the eggs have been broken is, ‘Oh my god, two years ago there was a poll that said 80 percent of you were against it.’ You look like a total fool,” Clinton said.
I guess Clinton forgot about Rwanda when he was President, where 800,000 people were killed in less than two months.
I'm sorry for interrupting your fun and you did have them going.
I notice the left wing media never mentions that Colin Powell also knew his under secretary Richard Armitage was the leak and Powell never said a word as Libby was crucified. Powell is sure a class act. No wonder he supports Obama, they have a lot in common.
