Thousands of North Carolina felons can now register and vote | National

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Tens of thousands of people serving felony sentences in North Carolina but not behind bars can now register to vote and cast their ballots this fall after an appeals court ruling.

The expansion of the circle of those who can register and vote began on Wednesday, the State Election Commission reported — the next day, local elections were held in more than a dozen localities.
