2020 California Proposition 17

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Proposition 17
November 3, 2020 (2020-11-03) (in -27 days)

The 2020 California Proposition 17 is a ballot measure that appeared on the ballot in the 2020 California elections on November 3. If passed, Prop 17 would amend the Constitution of California to allow people who are on parole to vote.[1] This proposition being passed would mean that more than 50,000 people in California who are currently on parole and have completed their prison sentence would be allowed to vote.[2] If passed, this proposition would also mean that all those on parole in the future will be allowed to vote as well. The work of Proposition 17 comes out of a history of addressing felony disenfranchisement in the United States.[3] California voters approved this measured by a margin of roughly 18 percentage points.[4]

Background

Appearing on ballot in the 2020 California elections on November 3, 2020, the proposed state constitutional amendment was originally introduced as California Assembly Constitutional Amendment No. 6 (ACA 6) by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty in January 2019.[5] ACA 6 passed the California State Assembly on September 5, 2019, and was approved by the California State Senate with 28 ayes on June 24, 2020.[6] After being put on the ballot, ACA 6 was given the ballot designation of Proposition 17.

Under California law, there is a distinction between probation and parole.[7] Probation is the part of the criminal sentence, and allows those with felonies to finish their sentence outside of the prison. Parole begins upon release from prison when their sentence ends.[8] As of July 2020, the Constitution of California allows someone on probation to vote, but prohibits people on parole from voting until their parole is completed. This will change if Proposition 17 passes, such that all individuals on probation or parole will be allowed to vote.[9]
