More than a million convicted felons in Florida had their voting rights restored Tuesday.

Constitutional Amendment 4 — known as the Voting Restoration Amendment — was passed in the state, allowing nearly 1.5 million convicted felons who’ve served out their sentence to vote.

The article goes on to state the following:

The measure doesn’t apply to anyone convicted of murder and felony sex offenses.

Prior to the amendment, convicted felons in the state had to wait five years after serving out their sentence and then apply with the Florida Clemency Board for the right to vote. The governor then needed to personally approve their petition to have their rights restored.
