Bill Summary

This joint resolution proposes a constitutional amendment that grants U.S. citizens who are 18 years of age or older a right to vote unless they are serving a sentence for a felony in a correctional facility at the time of an election. (Currently, some states disallow individuals from voting, either temporarily or indefinitely, after incarceration for a felony.)
