(AURN) -- In Florida, nearly 1 out of every 5 African-American men are ineligible to vote due to the state's laws that prohibit former felons from going to the polls. Officials of the NAACP are launching  billboard campaigns in Florida, Virginia, Kentucky and Iowa in an efforts to allow those who have been convicted of a felony to exercise their right to vote.
