    Opinions?

    Also, do felons lose their citizenship while incarcerated?
    Why shouldn't they have the right to vote? If you withdraw someone's ability to vote then you make that person a second class citizen. Where do you draw the line when it comes to withdrawing rights? Some people may think murderers and rapists should lose that right. Ok. But are you willing to revoke that right for fraud, bribery, or narcotics possession? Does theft warrant the loss of voting privileges?

    What we're saying here is that being a bad person is enough of a reason to revoke a constitutional right from someone. Who makes that decision? If you murder or kidnap someone you don't deserve to be a citizen, but if the government does it it's ok?

    Those are apples and oranges. I mean it. Stealing make-up from the store does not compare to touching, violating, scaring and threatening children.

    If this thread had a poll Falcarius would vote 'no'.

    Falcarius considers voting a privilege, felons should not have any sort of privilege. Also, if Falcarius had his way only people who committed 'violent crime' would be incarcerated, and they would most likely lose their right to vote forever.

    Well, heck... if dead people can vote, like they do in Chicago, why not felons?

    Yes, once released from prison, they should be able to vote.

    I absolutely believe that they should have the right to vote!

    My sister is a convicted felon which is lol-worthy in and of itself but not nearly as lol-worthy as the fact that she can now no longer vote, for the rest of her life. Ridiculous.

    unless their crime somehow implies that they would be unfit to perform that duty (im not sure what that would be), then no
