With midterm elections fast approaching, the debate about whether previously incarcerated citizens should be allowed to vote is heating up. Floridians will have the opportunity to vote on a proposed constitutional amendment which would restore voting rights to roughly 1.5 million residents who have completed felony sentences. Supporters of barring formerly incarcerated people from voting—a practice known as "disenfranchisement"—believe voting is a privilege that must be earned. Opponents of disenfranchisement argue it dehumanizes people who have paid their debt to society. What do you think?
