Voting is a civil right that should not be withheld from people who’ve committed nonviolent crimes. Strict voter restoration laws in states unfairly keep minorities from voting and must be changed to preserve the people's voice in federal elections.
People convicted of misdemeanors or felonies should suffer the consequences of their actions. They have forfeited the right to vote in federal elections. Allowing former felons to vote condones criminal behavior.
