A right guaranteed no matter the circumstance.. I'm not in favor of ex-felons being barred for life from voting, this is why our abhorrent prison conditions go largely ignored. Ex-cons aren't a voting bloc for any politician to worry about. Same can be said for immigrant communities and Native Americans (so few of them left). I like Australia's voting system which fines you for not participating and offers ranked choice voting. Also get rid of "winner take all" electoral college, an empty cornfield in Iowa shouldn't have the same electoral power as midtown Manhattan.
