A key Senate panel on Tuesday began grappling with how to carry out a constitutional amendment that “automatically” restores the right to vote to felons who’ve completed their sentences.

There will be a variety of forums coming up for Jacksonville’s elections, which will be on March 19, including one Tuesday night.

While the Jacksonville mayor's race grabbed most of the media attention Friday with City Councilwoman Anna  Brosche's entry, the other races are also coming clearly into focus.

A constitutional amendment took effect, Tuesday, that automatically restores the voting rights of some 1.4 million Florida residents with past felony convictions.

While many ex-felons are celebrating by registering to vote at their county supervisor of elections offices, how the administration of newly-sworn in Governor Ron DeSantis will respond, remains to be seen.

Several dozen people who served prison sentences congregated at the Duval County Supervisors of Election downtown Tuesday morning to register to vote.

Nearly one and a half million felons who have served their sentence regain the right to vote in Florida on Tuesday. The voting rights are being restored as a new amendment to the state constitution goes into effect.


City Councilman Terrance Freeman has filed to run for the At-Large Group 1 seat currently held by Anna Brosche - a fellow Republican who has hinted at challenging incumbent Mayor Lenny Curry. But Brenda Priestly Jackson, who’s running for the seat Freeman is now vacating, said he doesn’t meet the residency requirements to run.
