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.

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.

No this is protected by the fifth amendment as the right to life, liberty, and property without due process

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.
