"The changes Governor McAuliffe has made in the restoration of rights process were much needed and are commendable actions by our governor. Virginia is stronger when it is more open and transparent, and this announcement is another step in the right direction. I look forward to seeing additional progress the Governor and his team will make in the restoration of rights process, and ensuring more of our citizens who have done their time and paid their debt to society can re-enter into the civic process."
