Proposition 17

Support

Proposition 17 is a constitutional amendment that would allow people on parole for felony convictions to vote in California.[1]

Currently, the California Constitution disqualifies people with felonies from voting until their imprisonment and parole are completed. The ballot measure would amend the state constitution to allow people with felonies who are on parole to vote; therefore, the ballot measure would keep imprisonment as a disqualification for voting but remove parole status.
