Delaware Lawmakers Eye Bill On Voting By Felons

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Delaware lawmakers are considering a constitutional amendment aimed at making it easier for convicted felons to vote.

A bill to be considered by the House on Thursday would amend the state constitution to eliminate the five-year waiting period before eligible felons who have fully completed their sentences could have their voting rights restored.

The proposed amendment would have to pass two consecutive general assemblies before it could become law.
