Florida voters have passed Amendment 4 which allows most Florida felons who have finished out their sentence to be able to vote in future elections.

Convicted sex offender and murders will be exempt, the Sun-Sentinel reports. Supporters believe requiring felons to wait five years after sentence completion is too long.

Most states allow felons to vote after completing sentences.
