Louisiana has restored voting rights to people on probation or parole! Good news?
Isn't that half their male pou[pulation?
I don’t know why people view criminals as innocent victims. I’m sure you’d feel differently if it were possible to explain all of their crimes to you before you answered this poll.
No, not their sentence has been served.
Voting rights should not be taken away no matter what. No matter what crime they committed, they should have a right to vote for who they want to vote for too. Their lives and well being depend on it just like ours. Probably even more.
Not a good idea
For me, I want ALL people who have completed their sentences to have their voting rights restored. But I think you need to complete your sentence (or your probation) first. But I’m happy to hear opposing views on this, as I feel probation may be a grey area.
I can’t decide on this..
I do feel, you should have completed your full sentence..
Not partial completion..
That’s where I am too.
They shouldn't lose them in the first place.
If you're an adult citizen, you should have the right to vote.
This also would make it harder for a government to become tyrannical by making opposition to it a crime and then not let those "guilty" of it vote.
Needs to be a constitutional amendment.
I guess Republicans need all those votes from oxy addicts.
100% most of them who vote will vote Democrat.
Why will 100% of them vote for democrats?
Because conservatives are the main political party that has pushed for harsher sentencing laws and have actively fought to keep these individuals in the prison system. Also many parolees tend to be sent back into communities that are in very poor economic states, such areas tend to cater to Democrats.
Just like democrats need the votes from gangbangers, and ms13
I think most will probably not vote, and of those who do, a greater percentage will vote democrat than republican, IMHO. But really who they vote for is irrelevant. The question at hand is should someone have to wait until his sentence/probation is complete prior to having his voting rights restored.
