Yes, every citizen deserves the right to vote. Felons should be the first to vote as they have a right not to be subject to cruel and unusual punishment. This is also a way to show felons that society has not given up on them. We should try and rehabilitate felons rather than solely incarcerate and punish them.

Most Felons actually do have the right to vote after they get out of prison/jail.

@4STBS9Gfrom California  answered…2yrs

Yes, because there is nothing that a felon could vote on that would hurt the well-being of everyone else. Also, I think that the last thing felons think about while committing a crime is their distain from not being able to vote any more.

Yes because they are still people, my Dad was in prison for getting two people killed in a car accident after drinking. He amazingly survived and was sent to prison for 7 years because he did community service. He had an accident because he was young and dumb and managed to accidentally take the lives of 2 people. That doesn't make him a monster, why would you take someones natural right to vote away over an accident. Drunken driving is no joke but it's not like he would have done it with his own bare hands. Now other crimes have similar to results to this, most that were too extreme wouldn't matter because of the life sentences that were given to the murderers and such. It's very controversial and i'm not even truly sure but I do know that not all convicts are bad.

Yes, every US citizen should have the right to vote regardless of their circumstances. One person = one vote.

@597386Tfrom Washington  answered…2yrs

No way! Why would a person who broke the law of our land get to decide who will govern our nation? Hate governs them, and they should not be allowed to have the same rights as the American citizen.

Depends on what they did to go to prison. If it is not bad then sure. But if they did something terrible then no.

@95VJ7JV from California answered…7hrs

No they’ll only vote to benefit themselves by being able to get away with more crimes

@95VCY24 from Colorado answered…10hrs

I'd say that it should depend on their crimes, if they are rehabilitated and becomes a model citizen, then yes, they should have that right. However, if they are a repeating offender, then I'd say they shouldn't, since they may not have the best intentions.

@95VCV4W from Washington answered…10hrs
