Abstract

When I worked in my first criminal disfranchisement case in 1979, I thought it was a mere tidying up operation, an effort to overturn the last vestiges of the openly racist 1901 “disfranchisement convention” in darkest Alabama. I never imagined that the issue would become much more critical in the ensuing decades and that in 2006, I would be employed as an expert witness against felon disfranchisement in what claims to be the enlightened state of Washington. In many respects, the world has not moved forward.
