LWVUS joined 7 other organizations in sending best practice guidance for implementing Section 9 of President Biden's Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting to the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). The guidance outlines actionss that BOP facilities can take to provide accessible voting opportunities to eligible voters who are incarcerated in correctional facilities.
Eligible voters include those from states that do not lose the right to vote like the District of Columbia, Maine, Puerto Rico, and Vermont. Additionally, voters in Alaska, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama who are serving time in BOP facilities may also be eligible.
Providing the guidance is part of the League's ongoing work to urge agencies to fully implement the Executive Order on Voting Access.
