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

“We should be finding ways to get more voters to the polls, not looking for excuses to keep them away. So instead of prohibiting felons from voting, let’s require them to do it. That way, they will continue to repay their debt to society, long after they walk out of prison.”

“Why Can’t Felons Vote?,” Time magazine, Nov. 1, 2006
