It doesn't take place until after this election, but the future of California is over.

Convicted felons serving jail sentences in California county jails will now get to participate in an activity besides three meals a day and recreation time: votingin elections.

Governor Jerry Brown signed new legislation into effect as part of a reform backers say will help prisoners transition back into society while still serving time for their crimes.

The bill he signed would let thousands of felons doing time in county jails to vote in California elections, the LA Times reported.

The new law also reinstates eligibility to vote for those ex-prisoners on probation or being kept under community supervision starting next year.

The new law takes effect January 1, so will have no impact on this Novemberís elections.

One more reason I didn't stay long.... everything seems to be shoved down your throat, out there, they care more about power than law.... or the law abiding.... sad really

Let's see... You're incarcerated under a Dem-regime, so now you're prompted to vote for a Dem-regime.

Buena suerte, a-holes.

Prisons and county jails will become campaign stops for candidates in CA.
