FORT BEND DEMOCRATS

ATTENTION DEMOCRATS: The key Ground-Game Magazine® Tuesday, March 1, 2016 “Democratic” Primary “Competitive” Race in Fort Bend is the race for Texas State Representative (HD-27) between Ron Reynolds, Steve Brown, Angelique Bartholomew, and Chris Henderson.

Reynolds

Bartholomew

Henderson

***IMPORTANT (HD-27) INFORMATION

State Rep. Ron E. Reynolds (HD-27) is seeking re-election while fighting what he believes to be a miscarriage of justice he received

20


in Montgomery County. Reynolds is seeking to hold on to his seat while appealing his recent conviction on five counts of Misdemeanor barratry. He is out of jail after posting a $25,000 bond to gain his freedom -- as he fights to clear his name. His appeal in the “MISDEMEANOR BARRATRY CASE” is being handled by his fellow State Representative Harold Dutton (HD -142) – a wellknown Houston-area legislator and attorney. In a recent television interview Dutton seemed to allude to the fact that racism may have been a factor in the case against Reynolds – calling it “Conroe Justice.” It is also fair to note that, the misdemeanor conviction (alone) does not disqualify State Rep. Ron Reynolds from continuing to serve the people of Fort Bend County.

ON THE BLOCK

...Because No American Should Be Left Behind WE MUST GET EX-FELONS, OTHER POTENTIAL VOTERS OFF THE SIDELINES AND INTO THE GAME IN 2016 By Aubrey R. Taylor Publisher of GROUND-GAME MAGAZINE®

The current political landscape in America (in general), and Texas (in particular) could be drastically changed if ex-felons were informed and made aware of the fact that their rights are fully restored once they fully complete all required portions of their sentences.

Contrary to popular belief, people who have served time in county jails, state jails, as well as state or federal prisons (in Texas) “DO INDEED” have a right to vote in citywide, gubernatorial, and presidential elections. However, this is not something that’s widely publicized or promoted through other media outlets, but this is why GROUNDGAME MAGAZINE® is being published.

FORMER REPUBLICAN GOV. GEORGE W. BUSH WHO ALSO ROSE TO BECOME PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SIGNED THIS INTO LAW

Thanks to a bill signed by former President George W. Bush – back in 1997 when he was Governor of Texas, the two-year waiting period after completion of their (felony conviction) to regain their right to vote was lifted for ex-felons. According to research, an estimated 5.3 million Americans, or one in forty-one adults, have cur-

ON THE BLOCK rently or permanently lost their voting rights as a result of a felony conviction.

Get this, over 1.4 million African American men, or what would amount to 13% of the black male population, are being affected by this epidemic. African American men are being affected by this epidemic at a rate that’s seven times the national average according to research.

SOMETHING MUST BE DONE

I bet you didn’t know that the outlook for the next generation of black males isn’t looking very good these days. Many black males will have their lives negatively impacted as they are destined to become voiceless members of society if something isn’t done to curb the rate at which they are being disproportionately given felony convictions (for sometimes petty crimes or trumped up charges) in America. According to statistics, three out of every ten of the next generation of black males can expect to be deemed ineligible to vote due to trouble with the law during some point in their lifetime. In some states in America, where felons can’t vote, more than 40% of black men may permanently lose their right to vote if something is not done.


THIS ISN’T JUST A BLACK EPIDEMIC

Don’t sit back and think of this as a black problem; it’s estimated that over 5.3 million Americans, that’s about one in forty-one adult Americans, have currently or permanently lost their voting rights due to being convicted of a felony.

AMERICA AT A GLANCE

Alabama: In 2003, Governor Riley signed into law a bill that permits most felons to apply for a certificate of eligibility to register to vote after completing their sentence. Connecticut: In 2001, Governor Rowland signed into law a bill that extends voting rights to felons on probation. At that time, the law was expected to make 36,000 persons eligible to vote.

Delaware: In 2000, the General Assembly passed a constitutional amendment restoring voting rights to some ex-felons five years after the completion of their sentence. Iowa: Governor Vilsack issued an executive order in 2005 automatically restoring the voting rights of all ex-felons, a process that will continue on a monthly basis upon the completion of sentence.

51


ON THE BLOCK Kansas: In 2002, the legislature added probationers to the category of excluded felons.

Kentucky: In 2001, the legislature passed a bill that requires that the Department of Corrections inform and aid eligible offenders in completing the restoration process to regain their civil rights.

Maryland: In 2002, the legislature repealed its lifetime ban on two-time ex-felons (with the exception of felons with two violent convictions) and imposed a three-year waiting period after completion of sentence before rights can be restored. Massachusetts: In 2000, the Massachusetts electorate voted in favor of a constitutional amendment, which strips persons incarcerated for a felony offense of their right to vote.

Nebraska: In 2005, the Legislature repealed the lifetime ban on all felons and replaced it with a two-year post-sentence ban.

Nevada: In 2003, the state approved a provision to automatically restore voting rights for firsttime nonviolent felons immediately after completion of sentence.

New Mexico: In 2001, the Legislature adopted a bill repealing the state’s lifetime ban on ex-felon voting. In 2005, a bill was passed that requires the Department of Corrections to provide notification of completion of sentence to the Secretary of State’s office. Pennsylvania: A Commonwealth Court restored the right to vote to thousands of ex-felons who, as a result, were entitled to vote in the 2000 presidential election. Rhode Island: In 2006, Rhode Island voters approved a referendum to amend the state constitution and restore voting rights to persons currently serving a sentence of probation or parole.

52


Tennessee: In 2006, the Tennessee legislature amended the country’s most complex restoration system by greatly simplifying the procedure. All persons convicted of a felony (except electoral or serious violent offenses) are now eligible to have their right to vote restored upon completion of sentence and may apply for a “certificate of restoration” from the Board of Probation and Parole. All applicants must also satisfy any court-ordered restitution or child support obligations. Texas: In 1997, the Texas Legislature passed a bill, signed by Governor George W. Bush, eliminating the two-year waiting period after completion of sentence before individuals can regain their right to vote. Utah: In 1998, Utah voters approved an amendment prohibiting persons incarcerated for a felony conviction from voting.

Virginia: The Virginia legislature passed a law in 2000 enabling certain ex-felons to apply to the circuit court for the restoration of their voting rights five years after the completion of their sentence; those convicted of felony drug offenses must wait seven years after completion. The circuit court’s decisions are subject to the Governor’s approval.

Wyoming: In 2003, Governor Freudenthal signed a bill to allow people convicted of a nonviolent first-time felony to apply for restoration of voting rights five years after completion of sentence.

HELP US SPREAD THE WORD

Pursuant to Section 11.002 of the Texas Election Code (the “Code”), once a felon has successfully completed his or her punishment, including any term of incarceration, parole, supervision, period of probation, or has been pardoned, then that person is immediately eligible to register to vote.

FINAL FELONY CONVICTIONS

Please help those you know who may be in trouble with the law understand that a conviction on appeal is not considered a final felony conviction.

Please inform others that a “Deferred adjudication” is not considered a final felony conviction. You can refer them to Article 42.12, Section 5, Texas Code of Criminal Procedure.

Also, please let people know that prosecution, indictment or other criminal procedures leading up to, but not yet resulting in the final conviction, are not final felony convictions.


OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION FROM THE TEXAS SECRETARY OF STATE

The requirements for voting and candidacy are often confused. Under Texas law, the rules are different for voting and candidacy. Section 141.001 of the Texas Election Code generally provides that to be eligible to be a candidate for, or elected or appointed to, a public elective office, a person must have not been finally convicted of a felony from which the person has not been pardoned or otherwise released from the resulting disabilities. This means there is no automatic restoration of the right to be a candidate, as there is for voting purposes, after a full discharge. Absent a pardon, the candidate must have obtained a judicial release from his or her disabilities in order to run for any office to which this section applies. Similarly, the requirements for voting and for serving on a jury are different. Section 62.102 of the Government Code provides that a person who has been finally convicted of a felony is not eligible to serve on a jury, and that right may not be automatically restored as it is for voters. If you have any questions about these issues, please do not hesitate to contact the Elections Division of the Texas Secretary of State at 1-800-252-2216.
