It’s been a long time coming, but thanks to hard work by the ACLU of Washington, some very kickass legislators, and a ton of regular folks, the Voting Rights Restoration bill passed the legislature this spring. The law went into effect yesterday, which means now the trick is to make sure people know they are eligible. Luckily the ACLU is on it, check out their handy brochure below here, and via pdf through the link. Spread the word!

    Incidentally, credit should go to the ACLU and the legislators who led the way on this. Definitely not an easy lift, and they were doing it, and have been for years. More power to them – let’s just make sure people know!
