I am Crystal Mason, in 2012 I became a felon for tax fraud. I acknowledged & accepted responsibility for my actions. I served my prison sentence and entered back into the world focusing on being a model citizen. I got a job (working in corporate America). I went to school during the evening & sent time still helping & encouraging others that 2nd chances do exist. I wanted to make sure that I could educate and or help someone not to make the same choices I did. In November of 2016 the last day to vote my mom had been telling me repeatedly to go vote. Now it is fact & on record that no one told me that I couldn't vote. When I was released to the halfway house I was given a voter's registration card. I had no ideal I couldn't vote. I didn't realize that day by going to a voting location that was in my area a location I had gone to before to vote would lead me to some life changing events. My name was not on the list so as I was leaving a helper advised me that I could fill out a provisional ballot.
