Some convicted felons in Virginia will be able to vote in November's presidential election.
An executive order from the state's governor will allow more than 200,000 former prisoners who have served time and finished parole to cast their ballots in the swing state.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Thursday on Twitter, "VA has some of the most restrictive laws in the country for restoration of voting and civil rights."
