Daily Leader Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
Reasoning:

“Although far too few people exercise it, voting is a sacred right belonging to all law-abiding citizens. When citizens become no longer law-abiding, it is necessary to take their voting rights away….

Why should a convicted felon – who has broken at least one law serious enough to warrant the loss of his voting rights – have an easy path to voting rights restoration?”
