"Taxation without representation was wrong 240 years ago and it's wrong today."

My name is Keith Ivey. I'm 45 years old and I live in Jacksonville, Florida. When I was 30, I got incarcerated for a 10-year sentence. I served eight years and was released on good behavior. I've been on good behavior ever since. None of my crimes were violent crimes. I was raised right. I made some mistakes. My parents never turned their backs on me. They supported me the whole way through. I have two children that are in college. I'm living life to the fullest. But I still can't vote. I don't have any representation in our government. I would love to be a full member of society by being able to vote. When I was incarcerated, I was chosen to raise the flag and also take it down every day. When I came home, I felt like I would be able to honor my country by being able to vote. And it hasn't happened yet. Taxation without representation was wrong 240 years ago and it's wrong today. Through my family, through my wife, through my friends, all of them have encouraged me to be that light and be that source of redemption. On November 6th, Floridians will be able to vote on Amendment 4, which would restore the eligibility to vote to me and 1.4 million people like me. Please promise to vote on my behalf by clicking the "Promise" button. Thank you.

THANK YOU! LOVE yoU!
