One out of every 14 Kentucky adults can't vote because they're convicted felons.

That's according to the League of Women Voters.

It adds up to about a quarter-million Kentuckians.

The League's report says Kentucky has the third-highest rate of people who can't vote, because of felony convictions.

Kentucky has the second-highest rate among African-Americans.

The report also says Kentucky is one of just four states to prevent all felons from voting, even after they've completed their sentences.
