Grace provided in most states to allow voting as an Ex-Offender!
We have had so many women with Felonies coming to Destiny Point Women’s Restoration Home to turn their lives around, but are distraught “I lost my voting rights forever because I have a Felony/Felonies on my record” but in most cases that is not so!
