- Pro to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
“[I]n Arizona, ex-offenders who have completed all other terms of their sentence for a first conviction, including prison, parole and probation terms, cannot participate in the political process unless they pay their legal financial obligations.
In part because of these post-sentence restrictions, more than 175,000 Arizona citizens will be unable to vote on Election Day because of a felony conviction. More than 140,000 of those individuals have done their time in prison but are still unable to vote when they re-enter society….
Like its historical predecessor, the poll tax, this law disproportionately impacts low-income voters and people of color.”
