After waiting three decades, 54-year-old Michigander will vote in first general election

At 54 years old, William Lewis is a first-time voter. It’s not that Lewis wasn’t interested in voting before this election cycle — for more than three decades, he was denied the right to vote because of several felony convictions and a prison sentence for armed robbery.

But Lewis, who lives in Farmington, said he’s trying to move on from his past and to live a better life.
