Where are the felony convictions taking place?

Posted on Updated on

Minnesotans from all corners of the state are barred from voting because of felony convictions. This is not just an urban or rural problem. This is something that affects every single congressional district across the state. In 2012 12,000 people were convicted of felonies. That is 12,000 fewer people on the voting rolls. Many of these 12,000 may never spend a single day in prison yet will still be ineligible to vote. Check out this great pie chart that breaks-out how many felony convictions happened in 2012 in each congressional district. 2012 Felonies by District
