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.

@8T4WYSK from Oregon commented…1yr

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.

@963RSMVPeace and Freedom from California answered…6hrs

Yes but only if they didn’t commit a serious crime or is on a government watch list.

@963R5VL from Oklahoma answered…7hrs

I believe every felon should have the right to prove they are reformed and are a viable member of society that deserves a say in Government. If they pay taxes, they deserve representation. It is an American Standard.

@963QR5H from North Carolina answered…7hrs

I would like for them to vote but i would also like if there was some sort of rehabilitation to help re direct them into the correct path

@963Q8ZP from California answered…8hrs

I believe if you were convicted of a higher crime such you should not have the right to vote.

@963KGYR from Kansas answered…10hrs

Dependent on the crime the person commits and if they serve their full punishment.

@963JKBN from Illinois answered…11hrs

No, Although I believe once they have served their term or are proven un-guilty they should be able to vote.

@963HXK8 from Indiana answered…11hrs

No, because as some people of the law say, once you're arrested and convicted you are no longer a citizen (temp.)

@963HXFS from California answered…11hrs

It depends on the crime, if it is something small than yes, but a major conviction, then no.

@963HX96 from Texas answered…11hrs

Yes, but it depends on which crimes were committed by that felon and if they were the one to actually commit the crime.

@963HKH9 from Oregon answered…11hrs

@963DM3S from Maine answered…13hrs

if its for things like petty theft then yes but if they were convicted of worse crimes like murder then no

@963BZPK from North Dakota answered…13hrs

Yes, most people would think that convicted felons and violent crime offenders shouldn't be able to vote, however there are unfortunately some people that are convicted felons unfairly, and the justice system did them wrong. For me it all just depends on the situation.

@9638JJ9 from Texas answered…14hrs

Yes, with exclusion of certain egregious crimes against persons. Violence, sexual violence, crimes against children/disabled/elderly. Additionally, only after full completion of sentance.

@9638G3M from Alabama answered…14hrs

Yes everyone should have the right to vote no matter what they have done. You can't take away someones voting right for something they did for example; Someone drinks while driving and kills someone, no matter what happens they might get other punishments but taking a vote away is just useless why would you want to take their vote away if they get a right to vote in the first place.
