  • Should prisoners have the right to vote

    I believe prisoners should have the right to vote because they are humans, like us and have been downgraded and have had a human right taken away from them. So when they are sent to prison, the feel like they are lower than other people and that the government doesn't care about them any more. Therefore by taking away their right to vote, inmates have a bad reflection and feel of the government and leaders.

  • Just because they broke the law

    Doesn't mean they have to but cut off from the world all people should be allowed to vote why should they not be those people could be behind bars for nothing because they did not have a fair trial and they could behind for something they dident do so yes they should can vote

  • Bad for the world

    Choose the wrong person and then the person may be a bad person so then they might take over the world. People are in jail because they did something bad so they should not be able to do it becasue they lost there freedom by doing something bad to the world

  • All prisoners should have the right and chance to vote.

    Though these people may have committed a crime, being imprisoned doesn't change the fact that they, too, are affected by the results of elections. Some may also argue that they are incompetent of voting because they have proven themselves to be untrustworthy and irresponsible and they compare them to children, non-citizens, and mentally incompetents. This is not always the case for prisoners. I believe that if they feel the need to vote then they still have a sense of duty to their country in which they are still citizens of to vote.

  • Why should they?

    Prisoners have decided to go against the law and withdraw themselves from society, sapping up money from the government for their accommodation and food. Not having the right to vote should be a clear deterrent to people considering committing a crime, and if they committed the crime, then you could argue that the vote really isn't that important anyway?

  • Break the law and the result should be civil death until time served.

    Voting is a right and a privilege for people who wish to participate in democratic society. In the UK they are given a Civil Death where Prisoners are denied legal and civic freedoms afforded to the rest of us as punishment for breaking the law. The idea that we need to give all prisoners the vote because not doing so would harm their mental health and/or their rehabilitation back into society for me carries absolutely no currency. In fact it appears the vast majority of prisoners have a record of either not voting prior to incarceration or have no intention to vote anyway. Such is their damaged relationship with society. The idea that deep routed issues can be rectified by allowing prisoners to vote is nonsense and if it was seen as part of rehabilitation it should be something to aspire to participate in when they are afforded the right again on leaving prison.

  • Penalty for prisoners

    Prisoners couldn't follow the law. Law is like rules for nation.
    Not to give a right to vote is like a penalty for prisoners , I think. They did something and brought bad affect to somebody. They should notice that I did really bad things and if they want to concern politics or express their opinion, they will never do illegal behavior. Not to give vote might be good to deter criminal, if they really want to vote.

  • Prisoners should have the right to vote

    The reason I think that prisoners should have the right to vote is because, it doesn’t affect anyone. Yes they have committed a crime but that was a human right that humans have. I think that it is not fair because, the problems that the prisoners are having in prison.

  • They should not deserve a right to vote........!!!!!!!!

    These prisoners are the ones who will only and only take advantages of these innocent people and they steal money and stuff, In my opinion these are rude criminals and even if we vote them out they vote anybody out they will never change!
    I admit that , They are very different they are the ones who don't have feelings.

  • Only The Prisoners who committed crimes of Moral Turpitude lose the right to vote.

    These crimes include murder, voluntary manslaughter, kidnaping, robbery, and aggravated assaults involve moral turpitude. Moreover, people who went jail for drunk driving or any other white-collar crime are not deprived of their voting rights, Therefore, only people who committed crimes that show that they are clearly not in a mindset that one would want someone to be in if they going to vote. Thus, we should people who believe in the death of those who are innocent to partake in our civil and democratic government. Therefore, they do not deserve the right to vote. Which brings me to my next point.

  • Prisoners have kicked their right to vote away the moment they committed the crime.

    People say criminals too have the right to vote since they're human. But I think that they already gave up their rights as a human being when they committed the crime. If you wanted to be treated like a full citizen, then you shouldn't have committed the things that bring harm to other people. They already proved that they aren't the best decision makers. Why should we give them the right as important as choosing a domestic matter? Pay for your sins, and when your punishment is over, then you can vote.

  • No longer part of society

    Prisoners have committed offences against society and therefore as a punishment have been isolated from it. The vote is a privilege but is also a right as it's the basis of a functioning democracy so therefore, if prisoners are deemed to no longer be part of society then they should no longer receive the privilege as it is part of the punishment.

  • Prisoners are not full Citizens

    Citizens in America are what keep America running, and as a result are expected to obey rules. If you are stupid enough or crazy enough to break rules that land you a prison sentence (Murder, Theft, Corruption, etc.) then you don't deserve the full rights of a Citizen because you can't act like a Citizen. Since you put yourself at the mercy of the State by getting in prison, any right that the State wishes to revoke (Other than the 3 fundamental rights of Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happines) can be revoked and is justified.

  • They are criminals

    Criminals are already seen as untrustworthy and dangerous, otherwise they wouldn't be in prison in the first place. If you want to vote don't do something stupid enough to land you in prison, if you're in prison its because of your actions or actions taken against you. All citizens are allowed the 3 fundamental rights by our constitution (Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness) , this includes prisoners. Any right other than that can be revoked because you're in prison and if that includes the right to vote then it is justified.
