    Va gov moving forward to letting felons vote again - after court decision

    RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has again restored the voting rights of about 13,000 felons after his previous attempt was blocked by the state’s Supreme Court.

    I think that this includes people still behind bars?

    Other than the media selected picture, I see no evidence that any felon still actively incarcerated (doing time) has had their rights restored.
