Basically, Republican Gov. Branstad changed the law in 2011 by making
restoration of voting rights to felons dependent on himself. That opened the
door to a relative handful of people voting without realizing the law has
changed. The Republicans will use the cases against these accidental voters to
claim there is wide reaching voter fraud in the state.
If these people are dangerous, put them in prison. If not then they are
reformed, so let them vote.
