    I'm a Republican who voted for Obama in the Texas primary... Not because of Rush Limbaugh, but because I was trying to shut down the Clinton campaign.

    I moved to another state during primary season. I couldn't vote because of this.

    If there is no legal reason why you cannot vote, you could have voted because states make allowances for those who cannot see.

    I know because I read my mother's ballot to her (and marked it for her) when she got so she could not see.

    The election judges are allowed to do this also, in most states.

    Forgot that little stint in prison 30 years ago for which I never received a pardon.

    Ya would think 30 years of not even a ticket for spitting (pardon me, ladies) on the sidewalk, I would not need a pardon. :laugh:

    Oh well, God is good

    I have as yet to miss an election sense I was 18. I feel that not to do so is to dishonor the blood and sacrifice, of our forefathers and those that have and are now serving in harms way, to give us that holy right.

    SFIC, isn't God good to let you know what freedom really is? Mississippi should be made to make it right. Sense you've done the time, you're rights should be restored. If I am not mistaken though, Florida is the same way.

    Each state is different. In some states, the offense is considered, in others, certain time frames.

    This LINK will tell you state by state what can be done, if anything, to restore one's voting rights.

    It was written in March of 2008 (or at least updated then).
