In April 2016, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe issued an executive order which restored voting rights to more than 200,000 convicted felons living in the state. The order overturned the state’s practice of felony disenfranchisement, which excludes people from voting who have been convicted of a criminal defense. The 14th amendment of the United States prohibits citizens from voting who have participated in a “rebellion, or other crime” but allows states to determine which crimes qualify for voter disenfranchisement. In the U.S. approximately 5.8 million people are ineligible to vote due to voter disenfranchisement and only two states, Maine and Vermont, have no restrictions on allowing felons to vote. Opponents of felon voting rights argue that a citizen forfeits their rights to vote when they are convicted of a felony. Proponents argue that the arcane law disenfranchises millions of Americans from participating in democracy and has an adverse affect on poor communities.
I think that it depends on the crime, Everyone should have the right to vote but if you kill a child or for sexual assault on a child or murder in general then No, you shouldn't be allowed to do most things that other people can do.
Yes, but only after completing their sentences and parole/probation. Until then, they have forfeited their rights by breaking the law, and should not be allowed to vote if they are willing to hurt the country like that.
it depeds on there situation life if they robbed a big chain store or was selling drugs they could because there are other things to worry about like rape and woman beaters so they shouldnt be able to vote or get a say in anything
