From the business insider:
- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced an executive order on Wednesday to restore the voting rights of roughly 35,000 ex-felons on parole.
- The move effectively grants conditional pardons to existing parolees and directs state officials to submit a monthly list of new parolees to be considered.
- Cuomo said the order comes after the state’s Republican-controlled Senate shot down his earlier proposed legislation to restore voting rights for ex-felons
