These Alabamians voting for the first time is pure joy

Thousands of previously disenfranchised Americans are casting their ballot for the first time across Alabama today.

In May of this year, Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed the Definition of Moral Turpitude Act into law, effectively enfranchising former felons previously barred by the Alabama constitution from voting. A similar effort was made by Democrats in Virginia this year, granting tens of thousands of Virginians the right to vote for the first time in November.

The Alabama special election has been mired scandal involving the number sexual misconduct allegations against the Republican candidate, Judge Roy Moore. This, however, is a bright light in what was often a disturbing campaign.
