Default Voters Want Criminal Justice Reform. Are Politicians Listening?

Voters Want Criminal Justice Reform. Are Politicians Listening?

"THE RESULTS OF THE 2018 MIDTERMS are decidedly mixed. But while pollsters and pundits work to make sense of exactly what happened, one clear winner has emerged since Nov. 6: criminal justice reform.

Several state ballot measures reforming the criminal justice system passed with flying colors around the country. Floridians restored the right to vote to people with felony convictions; Louisiana abolished convictions based on non-unanimous juries; Washington state tightened up police accountability; and Colorado removed language in the state constitution allowing prison labor without pay."
