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."

Also top-level government officials (such as foreign leaders, US presidents, Founding Fathers, Supreme Court Justices, members of legislative bodies, cabinet members, military leaders, etc.) with positions relevant to felon voting issues.
