More Kentuckians Support Non-Violent Felons Voting Rights

A small majority of Kentuckians support changing the state constitution to restore voting rights to most convicted felons after they serve their sentences. That's according to a new Bluegrass poll.

The issue was debated in this year's state legislative session but did not win final approval. 52 percent of Kentuckians support such a change, while 34 percent oppose it.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul endorsed a version of the bill. Paul has said "for nonviolent crimes, we should try to reincorporate people back into society,"
