Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
"Felon disenfranchisement has become a contentious and significant public policy issue of late, a response to both the unprecedented rise of the carceral state and mounting questions of fairness in American democracy. More than two hundred years after this country was founded on the principle of equality, felons are the only class of citizens still disenfranchised from the vote."
