MN: Mike Dean: Felon-voting flap is a partisan distraction from bigger issues
The fact is that election officials have long needed better access to the Department of Corrections database so that they could verify whether someone is a felon.

But having access to this database solves only part of the problem; many felons are not provided with the basic information regarding the status of their voting rights. Felons who have not had their voting rights restored may inadvertently vote because they were never told that their voting rights were taken away.
