Sure why not?

Best Answer

There's currently a dispute between the UK and the European Court of Human Rights as to whether currently incarcerated convicts should have the right to vote. I can see the logic on both sides, to be honest.



I don't think the right to vote should ever be denied permanently. It's a dangerous precedent, allow governments to deny voting rights to people who are otherwise free citizens and they might someday feel justified extending their power to do so.

Best Answer

Yes. No citizen of age of majority should be denied the right to vote.

Sure.. they have a hard enough time getting a decent job.. let'em have something... geeeezzzzz

Best Answer

If they they are net positive financial contributors to the community they're voting in, yes. So if they (or you) pay more to the state in taxes than you receive in direct benefits, they (you) should get to vote in a state election. If they (you) pay more to the feds then they (you) get from federal benefits, you should get to vote in federal elections, etc.



No more bread and circuses!

To save time, you might as well just deny the vote to people who don't want to vote conservative. Why pretend you had anything else in mind?

Best Answer

Personally I'm ok with that, but I think it's a little draconian. That actually wouldn't be the effect though. Something like 44% of high income voters went to Obama.

Best Answer

I think it depends on their past charges. You also have to consider people always holding the past against you. Okay, you are treated like that by family. Then, you are treated like that in society. When you have already done your time and changed your entire life. Well, how would you feel. That is something to think about.

After they're out, is a different story.

Best Answer

You realize that the US is considered to have one of the harshest prison systems on the planet and the largest percentage of the population incarcerated. You're competing with luminaries like Iran and China here.
