Yes. Felons should lose their right to vote under the constitution during and after incarceration.
Felons constitutionally lose their right to vote only during incarceration.
There is no constitutional justification to ban felons from voting during or after incarceration

I am loath to see ANY of my fellow Americans restricted from voting (on principle).
But I also have practical objections - felons often cannot vote already, and I recently saw a thread here debating the loss of voting rights for those on welfare.
When we restrict voting rights for any group we leave open the possibility of the slippery slope of further restrictions for other groups deemed marginal to society. Of course "Who deems them marginal?" is the $64M question.
As to the cons - they did their time, that's good enough for me.
