This is one of my key political issues. Every citizen should get to vote. Everyone. If you're in prison, they should bring you a ballot there and make it an official polling place. As you near your release date, you should be given the opportunity to gain whatever photo ID or other documents are necessary to vote in your state. Because if people convicted of crimes aren't allowed to vote, then a sufficiently immoral regime can maintain power by making sure that their opponents are convicted of crimes at a disproportionate rate. That is, of course, exactly what happens in America. Disenfranchisement of convicts is just one facet of the current incarnation of Jim Crow.
