A picture is worth a thousand words… On November 8, 2016, Election Day, I was part of the 6.1 million people in the United States not voting. Not voting because we couldn’t vote. The premise for being disenfranchised from voting is based on the prior act of the commission of felony. A prior felony conviction shouldn’t be a pretext for temporary (in Nebraska 2 years) nor permanent (Florida etc…) suspension of your right to vote. A felony conviction doesn’t forfeit your citizenship. Returning and returned citizens are counted in the census while incarcerated for the distribution of resources and taxed like all other citizens upon completion of their sentence(s) but not allowed to vote.
