Let My People Vote Campaign Stops in the Capitol City

   An organization working to restore the voting rights of ex-felons is touring the state.  On Tuesday, the Let My People Vote Campaign stopped in Montgomery to get their message out. 

   For the past five years the Let My People Vote campaign has traveled to prisons educating and informing current and ex-prisoners that certain felonies should not result in a loss of voting rights.

   Kenneth Glasgow with the Let My People Vote Campaign tells WSFA 12 News, "Everybody's vote counts, and once a person knows their voice, their vote counts they'll be more of a productive citizen."

   Glasgow says the campaign has helped about 20,000 people register to vote or are in the process of restoring their voting rights.
