Should Former Felons Be Allowed to Vote?
An estimated 6.1 million people with a felony conviction are barred from voting in elections - a condition known as disenfranchisement. Each state has its own laws on disenfranchisement. Some allow people with felony convictions to vote from prison, some restore voting rights after varying combinations of prison, parole, and probation, and some ban former felons from voting permanently.
