Gov. Terry Branstad has streamlined the application form for the restoration of voting rights.
The updated application includes simplified instructions for applicants; clarification of the current policy about submitting documentation; provides contact information; removes a requirement for a credit history check; and provides a more detailed checklist of materials.
"Iowa has a good and fair policy on the restoration of rights for convicted felons," Branstad said.
