Securing the Voting Rights of Felons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Some states in the United States continue to disenfranchise those convicted of a felony, even well after they have completed their term of incarceration. This paper argues that the United States Supreme Court should overturn these laws. It argues they are anti-democratic, continue punishment of a person once they have served their allotted jail term, and reflect poor public policy in continuing to separate a convicted felon from society even after they have served their punishment.
