Virginia is one of four states whose constitution permanently disenfranchises citizens with past felony convictions, but grants the state’s governor the authority to restore voting rights. This April, Gov. Terry McAuliffe used that authority to re-enfranchise over 200,000 Virginians. This executive order is now the subject of two lawsuits, one of which is pending before the state’s Supreme Court.
