Virginia:
Rights Restoration

Restoration of  Voting Rights for People with Felony Convictions (2016)

In June 2016, the Fair Elections Legal Network and Jenner & Block filed an amicus brief in the challenge to the Virginia restoration order for people with a felony conviction, Howell v. McAuliffe, which was filed in the Supreme Court of Virginia. We argued that the voters and individual legislators who brought the petition for writs of mandamus and prohibition do not have standing and the case should be dismissed.
