Proposition 17

If approved, Proposition 17 would restore voting rights for individuals

on parole, but no longer in state prison. The inequity of our criminal justice system has

disproportionately disenfranchised communities of color and lower income citizens.

Further, research shows that in jurisdictions where voting rights are more easily

restored, formerly incarcerated individuals reoffend at lower rates. Proposition 17 will

strengthen voting rights and public safety.
