The one thing I took out of this is that Americans get a sticker after voting... Really?

Fun fact: if “there are no standards” and they “can make whatever decision they like”, there is, in fact, no established process for reestablishing voting rights.

I have one issue with this segment and it's the picture of the Tallahassee, Fl used. As long time fan of the show and someone born in tally 😑; I believe you should have used a picture of the capital building. It's a hilarious sight and anyone driving in town has most likely seen the capital erection of Florida.

Well, we did it. We passed ballot prop 4. Restoration of voting rights to most ex felons. Clearly it was the work of Mr Oliver. I thank you by sending you a gift package that is pure Florida: Oranges stuffed with gator meat, sprinkled with cocaine and a can of bud light with a seminole feather sticking out of it. But really I was super glad it passed. Besides the morality of it, maybe the (hopeful) surge of voters will have our races not all be razor thin margins!

All official videos by Rick Scott are censored, comments disabled because he knows they would all be negative comments, that's called censorship and only lying dishonest criminals like Rick Scott want the truth hidden, they don't want to be exposed for the dishonest shitbags that they really are.

I am a Brit who because of the Bugle podcast, watches John Oliver's videos fairly "religiously" (Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption, Amen) but I get disenchanted with the frustrating American political climate. I am nothing more this an observer, but coupled with England's inability to be friends with it's even closest, more European cousins and my general love of a little bit of misery, I currently reside in Australia. It would be interesting to see John Oliver and his excellent research team come to Australia to see where things don't quite add up... and go down under... I could find you all a housesit...the remaining natural landscape is nice here...

I hope you realize the magnitude and difference it will make in the future for Florida. THANKS also to the number of news papers and news channels (CNN) for carrying your message further. ....AND to Rick Scott I say....you sir should be afraid, very afraid...over one million voters will not forget what you did.

On the subject of disenfranchisement, am I correct that a great number of native Americans have had their right to vote rescinded because the postal service only permits those who live on reservations a post office box address and the rules for voter registration were recently changed to say you had to have a street address. If that’s true, would I be correct in guessing they’d be leaning towards the democrats?

You should be able to vote even while in jail. The only reason I see for taking away the vote is if you are on Death Row post-initial conviction. Even those convicted for treason should still get the vote, since the basis for their conviction for treason is inherently political.
