As of today, 11,467 Colorado parolees can register to vote. Will they?
"State Rep. Leslie Herod, a Denver Democrat, sponsored the parolee voting bill this past legislative session. She said she hopes that by November, the percentage of voting parolees mirrors or comes close to the percentage of non-parolee citizens who participate in elections. Nearly 60 percent of eligible voting-age Coloradans voted last November, according to the Secretary of State’s Office."
"But Herod also said she knows it’ll be a challenge to reach many of those affected by the new law."
