People here in America are getting pretty anxious as the 2016 Presidential election draws closer and closer. Vote-by-mail instructions have already started going out to many, an indication that voting will happen in no time. There are certain requirements to be eligible to vote, the obvious one is being at least 18 years old, actively registered to vote, and a U.S. citizen. However, there are a couple of lesser known restrictions because they do not affect everyone.
- A person may not vote if a court finds that person to be mentally incompetent.
- If a person is currently in jail or on parole at the time of the election, they may not vote. However, if they have previously been in jail, have been released, and are no longer on parole, then they automatically regain their right to vote, if they were already registered to vote.
All eligible Americans are encouraged to exercise their right to vote this coming presidential election. We all know that this election is a big one.
