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.

@5TVCTBHDemocratfrom 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.

@9G8W2J9Peace and Freedom from Indiana answered…2yrs

I'm conflicted. Obviously, the person who's elected and their choices will affect the criminal if they're incarcerated or not but I think it depends on the crime. Then again, I don't want to discriminate and pick and chose who can vote and who can't. But at some point, a crime is so horrendous that the person who committed it is truly not a person because no "normal" person would do that.
