NJTV Online’s Michael Hill Reports

The state Senate voted to restore voting rights to 83,000 New Jerseyans on parole and probation.

“I got to push the button to vote, and Sen. Cunningham blessed me with the ability to push the button to restore my right to vote today, which I didn’t expect waking up this morning,” said parolee Antonne Henshaw.

The approval would mean Henshaw can vote for the first time after serving 30 years for murder and will spend the rest of his life on parole.
