Louisiana appeals court hears arguments on VOTE v. Louisiana

A Baton Rouge-based state appeals court wrestled Tuesday with the thorny legal question of whether formerly incarcerated people who are now on probation and parole should be allowed to vote in Louisiana. Attorneys for the state and a group of felons challenging current Louisiana law debated the phrase “under an order of imprisonment” before a three-judge panel of the state 1st Circuit Court of Appeal at the LSU Law Center.
