Criminal justice reform – bringing ex-felons on board as responsible citizens.

Markk

The goals of incarceration are supposed to be punishment and rehabilitation of convicted law-breakers into becoming law-abiding citizens.  For ex-felons to care about living as non-criminals when released from prison, we need to give them the expectation and respect of being able to responsibly consider issues, then vote.  Keeping ex-felons as permanent outcasts from the vote diminishes their belief that lawful citizenship applies to them.
