Project to help Va. felons regain voting rights


WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- William & Mary law students and the Williamsburg Bar Association are teaming up to help Virginians with non-violent felony convictions regain their voting rights.

Law students and supervising attorneys from the Williamsburg area will operate a hotline on Monday and Wednesday to answer questions about navigating the voting rights restoration process. The hotline will be open each day from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The project is called "Revive My Vote."
