Can Former Inmates Vote?

Disenfranchised Voters Infographic

Elections have consequences for all of us, but there are Americans, who are not allowed to vote. Almost six million Americans are disenfranchised from voting, even if the former inmates are again productive members of society, who pay taxes. Only states decide who can vote–not the Federal government. There are states, who do not restore the right to vote even,  upon completion of the sentence. Three states allow probationers and parolees the right to vote, and twenty states allow former inmates, the right to vote upon completion of their sentence. It is time to restore the right to vote to all Americans.

    When returning citizens lose the right to vote, it is a message of second class citizenship at best. To me this is suggesting racial discrimination and sending the message that returning citizens can never be trusted.

    I think it is OK for ex-cons to vote but it should be on a case by case basis instead of automatic

    If you’re going to restore their constitutional right to vote, why not restore all of their constitutional rights, including those guaranteed under the Second Amendment?

    Here in Texas I have been voting in every election since 2008. I was released after serving my sentence day for day in August of 2006. I am of the opinion that an individual’s right to vote should be reinstated after they have served their sentence in its entirety (day for day inside, or live down your parole supervision period.) Or have been out and been a law abiding, productive member of society for over 10 years, if they have a really lengthy sentence.

    Actually it has changed in Alabama. Once you start the pardon process after all requirements are met they restore your voting rights as soon as you apply for the pardon with the exception of violent crimes those crimes are not eligible I am going though the process now.

    Why does everyone assume they will vote Democrat? Also, if they have done their time and finished their parole, their rights should be restored.
    By-Phillip

  29. PrsonP@th September 14, 2018 at 3:02 pm #

    Once they do their time they should be able to petition the courts for their voting rights being restored.

    Not according to existing law. Convicted felons lose that privilege.

  36. PrsonP@th September 18, 2018 at 7:01 pm #

    I can attest, as a felon that just voted, yes, once your sentence is up and all time and money are paid, you’re free to vote. And all your other rights, depending on the crime committed.
