Our Voices, Our Votes: Felony Disenfranchisement and Re-entry in Mississippi

March 9, 2021

Our Voices, Our Votes: Felony Disenfranchisement and Re-entry in Mississippi analyzes how Mississippi silences those with prior felony convictions and creates reentry barriers for returning citizens. Using statistics, national data, and personal stories from directly impacted Mississippians, the report shines a light on what people with felony convictions are up against. The report details how the state's Jim Crow legacy not only fails to assist returning citizens, but permanently disenfranchise them. With this report, organizers hope to bring change to the Mississippi criminal legal system and restore voting rights for all incarcerated citizens who have served their prison term.
