Felony Convictions and the Right to Vote

Posted on Categories Criminal Law & Process, Speakers at Marquette

On April 23, Marc Mauer, Executive Director of the Sentencing Project, will be on campus to speak on “Losing the Vote: Felony Disenfranchisement and American Democracy.”  Mauer has been a national leader in drawing public attention to the ever-expanding body of “collateral consequences” suffered by convicted felons, including loss of the right of vote.  I look forward to hearing Mauer’s talk, which is part of the McGee Lecture series sponsored by Marquette’e Department of Social and Cultural Sciences.  The talk will begin at 7:00 in Room 001 of Cudahy Hall.
