Stec Reacts to Governor’s Executive Order on Parolee Voting

A statement from Assemblyman Dan Stec (R,C,I-Queensbury)
April 19, 2018

“It is outright unacceptable that the governor would circumvent the Legislature and disrespect the democratic process by allowing all parolees to vote. This is a slap in the face to law-abiding citizens and the very legislators who represent them.

“These individuals made a choice to break the law, they forfeited their right to vote until their entire sentence is served, parole included. A process already exists that allows parolees who have made positive steps toward rehabilitation to be able to vote, to treat all parolees in this manner is just illogical.

“First it was tablets for prisoners, now we are granting all parolees the right to vote. Where will we draw the line?”
