"Nebraska in the Lead"

The NY Times offers this editorial, which begins: "The United States stands virtually alone among democracies in having laws that continue to disenfranchise former prisoners even after they have paid their debts to society and finished parole or probation. A vast majority of the nearly five million citizens who were barred from voting in the last presidential election would have been free to vote in Australia, Britain, France and Canada."
