I believe that prisoners should have the right to vote. I believe this because in politics the overwhelming view on crime is that longer and harsher sentences are better. No one is making election promises about how they're going to be soft on crime, it's all 'harsh on crime'.

So I believe that by giving the prisoners the vote, politicians would have to have a more balanced, and rehabilitation views on criminals.


I accept your challenge.

Good topic. I agree with you though. You might want to specify that you mean all prisoners, of if you don't, that you mean some prisoners.

Perhaps you'd want non-violent prisoners to be allowed to vote, and not all of them.

Or maybe you do mean all of them.

If you do mean all prisoners, I suppose you can leave it as is.
