WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Nancy Beckwith perfected her painting skills while in prison. She was sentenced to six years for selling prescription pills. She got her freedom back two years ago, but not her voting rights.
"Florida is one of the worst states for that. In other states, like Maine, people in prison vote and their rights are never taken away," said Beckwith.
Linda Geller-Schwartz with the organization said, "We need five thousand signatures by end of March and ultimately we need over 600,000 signatures to get this on the ballot."
