Should incarcerated convicts get the right to vote? http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/OttawaSun/News/2004/06/03/483694.html Personally, I don't think they should. As part of their punishment of taking away civil rights (freedom, etc) I think the right to vote should be suspended. I don't think it will make them feel like more a part of society. They weren't too concerned with that when they committed their crime. They should feel exiled and isolated. That's the point of prison. They should be glad to get back into society and motivated to not go back to prison.
