Community Push to Register Felons Before Voter Deadline
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Using her own money, law student Leslie Raby organized a voter registration drive on Saturday -- offering free hot dogs and signing people up to vote.
She held the event in the parking lot of In Da Cut Barber Shop on the Northside.
Many of the people Raby reached out to were felons.
She wanted to remind them that they may have had their civil rights restored, meaning they can vote in the upcoming election.
"It's their entitlement. Use something that you have -- that was given to you for free -- because you're entitled to it," Raby told First Coast News.
Last year, Governor Charlie Christ signed an executive order, restoring the civil rights of 600,000 felons who had served their time.
People who were convicted of murder or sex crimes have to go through a full investigation and hearing before their rights can be restored.
But for many, like Mortimer Day, they already earned back their right to vote.
Day, 32, served five years in prison for a felony.
He stopped by the voter registration drive to fill out paperwork so he can vote on November 4th.
"I made that one mistake and it cost me," says Day. "There's nothing like having the right to vote."
The last day to register to vote is Monday, October 6th
