I hope so. What’s the logic in them not being able to vote? If someone is convicted of committing a crime and completes their sentence, haven’t they paid their bill in full? Else, what did the punishment mean?
Just for an example and I know each case will be very different. I knew a man who was shot in the neck during the Korean War. He came back and the "Truman year" was announced to him. He said he went AWOL rather than do an additional year in service. Maybe he had PTSD (back then they called it shell shock) because he said he started robbing people. He went to prison, rightly, for this crime. He got a dishonorable discharge from the Army plus was a felon. When he told me this, it was decades after and he had never broken the law again. Should we let him vote ?
It has to happen - it’s wrong to block them.
Sad that far right wingers believe if we restore their right to vote, "they will all vote democrat". Nevermind about fairness and debt paid for crimes committed.
If you remove someone's rights permanently, you remove a part of their stake in the rules of society. So better to eliminate the right to vote to the period of incarceration or home surveillance, if the felony conviction is not for murder.
The right wants to let them get guns...if they can get guns...they should have the right to vote...simple, eh?
