The Wyoming House of Representatives gave its final approval Friday to a bill that seeks to streamline and speed up the process for felons to regain their voting rights upon release.

Currently, felons have to go through a process by asking the Wyoming Board of Parole to restore their voting rights.

But House Bill 15 would automatically restore the rights for some nonviolent offenders without them having to submit an application to the state.

The proposal passed on a 57-3 vote.

It now advances to the state Senate.
