- Pro to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
“Yes, I support the idea that prisoners should be allowed to vote. One of my reasons is that prison ‘is’ punishment and not ‘for’ punishment. Disenfranchisement is a collateral consequence of imprisonment which can have adverse effects for an individual as well as the political system.”
