I was looking up some information online about felons and their voting rights. It seems that most states already have it so that felons are able to vote. It was broken down like this: 1) 2 states (Maine and Vermont) allow felons to vote during incarceration. 2) 13 states allow felons to vote after their incarceration is done. 3) 4 states allow felons to vote following their parole. 4) 20 states allow felons to vote after probation. So that's 39 states where the felons get their voting rights back. Now for the other 11 states, it is broken down like this: 1) 8 states have laws about felon voting rights based on the circumstance, or the severity of the crime committed. So for some that means getting it back after incarceration, parole, and probation. For others that means they must make a petition, which has no guarantee that your voting rights will be returned. 2) 3 states (Florida, Iowa and Kentucky) require individual petitions, so these would be the hardest states to get back your voting rights. Not sure how I feel about them getting the right to vote. I mean they broke a rule in the past, it can easily happen again. Or they could have learned from it, and fixed their life. Another thing to remember is that a lot of people who have the right to vote don't use it, so for some felons losing that privilege would not affect them. Right now I don't see a need for that states to change their ways of handling it.
