DID YOU KNOW CONVICTED FELONS CAN’T VOTE, BUT THEY CAN RUN FOR PRESIDENT

Fun fact of the day: A convicted felon can run for president of the United States of America.

Now depending on the state in which a person was convicted in, the restoration of voting rights can vary. According to an article published by NonprofitVOTE, in all but two states and the District of Columbia, of-aged citizens convicted of a felony are prohibited from voting for a certain period of time, and laws can vary in each state: many states restore voting rights to individuals automatically after they exit jail or prison, some continue the bar on voting even while on probation or parole, and a few permanently disenfranchised people with a past conviction require that person to petition the government to have their voting rights restored. 

Here is a state overview on voting rights and a felony conviction: 

Voting rights retained while in prison for a felony conviction in: Maine, Vermont, and the District of Columbia

Voting rights restored automatically upon release from prison in: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, and Virginia

Voting rights restored automatically upon completion of sentence, including prison, and both parole, and probation in: Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Washington*, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Voting rights restoration can depend on the date or type of conviction, repayment of fines, the outcome of an individual petition to the government, or gubernatorial pardon in: Alabama, Alaska,  Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Delaware, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Wyoming.

 Despite all the variations that come with felony disenfranchisement, the U.S. Constitution does not prevent a felon from running for the office of the President. The only requirements that are necessary for a person to run for president is that the candidate must be a natural-born citizen of the United States of America, 35 years of age or older, and they must have been a U.S. resident for 14 years.

The Constitution also notes that the only additional exception would be the prohibition of a tenure of longer than 2 terms of 4 years each. (This amendment was added nearly a decade after the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt had won his third term in office- which limited the number of terms served by the President.)

On a closing note, if anyone was curious as to know if former president Donald Trump could run again for the office of the president- despite his involvement with the Jan. 6 insurrection on the Capitol, the recent FBI raid of his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, and the two criminal investigations that are looking into possible election interference and alleged financial crimes- yes he can, and most likely will.

This is possible even if he is convicted of felony charges because one: according to the U.S. Constitution, since the former president only served a single term, he is eligible to run for president for one more term, and two even if were to become incarcerated, the constitution states that it is entirely legal to be a felon running for office.

 

I’ll be looking out for the campaign announcement, as I’m sure you all will too, especially after reading this blog post.

 

Stay woke, stay informed, and stay safe.

Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

- Someone does a search and winds up at genzworldwide.com.

- They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

- And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

- Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

- There they go.

This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

But you CAN fix that.

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

Strong stuff.

Good day,

My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

What for?

Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with genzworldwide.com definitely stands out.

It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out genzworldwide.com.

Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.

Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website genzworldwide.com…

I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

Like yours, many of them have great content.

But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

Here’s a solution for you…

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

CLICK HERE https://boostleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.
