Subject to voter approval at the 2020 general election, amends Section 2, Article VI, of the NC Constitution, to permit any offender convicted of a felony to vote if that person has completed any period of active punishment imposed by the court. Excludes from the new provision any person convicted of a felony offense of murder or a felony sexual offense until citizenship rights are restored. Under current law, no convicted felon may vote unless that person's citizenship rights have been restored.
