Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"

Union-Bulletin Editorial Board, Feb. 9, 2007

Also, those who support re-enfranchisement of some felons but not others (for example, felons who committed murder or rape) are also classified as Not Clearly Pro or Con.]
