Governor Matt Bevin has rescinded an executive order by former Gov. Steve Beshear that would restore voting and public office rights to Kentucky felons not guilty of violent or sex crimes who have completed every detail of their sentence. Bevin says he supports the idea, but believes it should be accomplished by legislation, not executive order. So far, according to state officials, no convicted felon has been granted voting rights under the order, although about 180 people had applied for restoration. At least one bill has been filed for next year’s legislative session in Frankfort to enact that restoration.
