Should felons be allowed to vote? | The Tylt

Florida, one of those states, will vote in the 2018 midterms to restore voting rights for 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?
