Crist asked to let ex-felons vote

During his campaign for governor, Republican Charlie Crist made news when he changed a longheld position and said felons should get their voting rights back after completing their sentences.

Now that Crist is the governor-elect, he's being asked to follow through. The intergovernmental, recreational and cultural affairs committee of the Miami-Dade County Commission passed a resolution today urging the incoming governor to sign an executive order restoring felons' civil rights. The American Civil Liberties Union is also trying to set up a meeting with Crist to discuss the issue.

"We're exploring our options on how to achieve this,'' said Crist spokeswoman Erin Isaac.
