In class, I linked everyone to a website by the National Conference of State Legislatures: (https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/felon-voting-rights.aspx). The website describes the differences between states inside of the U.S.A. that allow and do not allow felons to vote, and the website has links to various sources that can help jumpstart your research.
