Gov. Phil Bryant has signed bills to restore the voting rights of three people convicted of felonies.
In Mississippi, the only way to restore the right to vote after a a felony conviction is through the Legislature passing a suffrage bill. Only three people were approved to have their voting rights restored this year.
The Clarion-Ledger reports that Bryant signed bills this week to restore suffrage to:
-- Donald F. Jones of Gulfport, was convicted of grand larceny in Wayne County, Mississippi, in 1978.
-- Michael Todd Manual of Rankin County, who was convicted of embezzlement in Forrest County in 1999.
-- Randall Lamar Bolton of Panola County, who was convicted of grand larceny in 1980.
