Utah Eliminate Felons' Right to Vote, Proposition 4 (1998)
Utah Proposition 4, also known as the "Resolution Eliminating Voting Rights of Convicted Felons", appeared on the November 1998 statewide ballot in Utah, where it passed, with 82% in favor. It was one of six statewide ballot measures that year in Utah. All six measures, including Proposition 4, were legislative referrals.
The language on the ballot said:
Proposition 4 restricts any person convicted of a felony from voting and holding office in Utah. This proposition restricts those rights until the right to vote or hold elective office is restored as provided by statute. It also modifies language relating to the restoration of rights for other persons deprived of the right to vote or hold office.
