    If someone has been released from prison after they did their time they should be allowed to vote, their right to vote should never have been taken from them in the first place. Maybe you can justify people in jail not voting but when released they should have that basic of civil right.

    There may be a few exceptions, people who have been found guilty of terrorism, people who have been convicted of electoral fraud or political corruption might be banned from voting because of the nature of these crimes, but regular criminals once released should be allowed to vote.

    The removal or restriction of rights should be a part of sentencing, not an automatic process.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
