government | human & civil rights | prisons & prisoners oregon elections 2004

Are you an ex-felon (or do you know one?) In Oregon you ARE allowed to vote!

In Oregon, anyone can vote once they're out of prison. The Democrats carried Oregon by only 6,700 votes in the last presidential cycle. Yet it's estimated there are 30,000 men and women who may be under the false impression that they don't have the right to vote!
If you know someone who's done their time, help them to register and encourage them to vote. (And encourage them to vote for KERRY! Yes, I like Nader too. But this time it's too crucial.)
