Voting rights of California felons: a policy analysis
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the Assembly Bill 2466 on Felon Voting Rights in California Policy by using the Policy Analysis Framework from Jillian Jimenez. The assembly bill helped clarify the wording to allow individuals that are convicted with a felony though not serving time in Federal and State prison and not on parole the right to vote in California. The method used was Jimenez's policy analysis model to evaluate AB 2466. Results found that the bill still disenfranchises some in the prison population and how it can negatively affect this community. Therefore this paper will give alternative policies and advocacy suggestion on how to help better AB 2466 and how to help enfranchise the imprisoned population.
