With the exception of Maine and Vermont, incarcerated individuals are not allowed to vote. Some states have laws that go even further and prevent anyone who has ever been to prison from ever restoring their voting rights. Critics argue people who break the law forfeit their right to participate in the political process. But others argue mass incarceration and sentencing disparities disenfranchise millions of Americans and disproportionately impact African-Americans. What do you think? 🗳️
