Iowa's Supreme Court has issued a ruling that will keep some people from voting in November.
FOX's Dave Anthony reports:
Commit a felony in Iowa and you lose your right to vote there forever. That's what the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday upholding what Iowa lawmakers decided in 1994 when they defined all felonies as infamous crimes.
The court rejecting an ACLU appeal on behalf of a woman who argued that her nonviolent drug offense was not infamous so she should be allowed to vote. But instead Iowa joins Florida and Kentucky banning convicted felons from voting for life.
Only the governor can act to restore the right. Other states do let felons go to the polls. Maine and Vermont even lets them vote while in prison.
