The Virginia Constitution states voting rights can be restored on a case-by-case basis and only after an official review of the individual, Judicial Watch said. A blanket restoration of all felons’ voting rights is illegal. The lawsuit aims to make sure no felons appear on voting rolls as eligible voters — the felon vote is overwhelmingly Democratic and could swing the crucial state for Hillary Clinton in the general election.
