Slashback: Summer, Sail, Sex Offenders

dietz Re:Sex offenders have no rights? (471 comments)

Note that all convicted felons -- not just sex offenders -- have lost their right to vote.

That's only true for federal elections and certain states. It's a common misconception that it's true everywhere, which leads to tons of felons who are eligible to vote for state and municipal issues not voting.

So I thought I'd point that out before the urban legend spreads further.
