That said, I do think this ought to be on a case to case basis as opposed to defining e. g. all crimes of at least half a year in jail as losing your voting rights. Furthermore, I’d also be in favour of being able to get voting rights reinstated if they prove they have sufficiently well reintegrated in society.

So what? This question is not about whether the law in some country should change.
Sorry. I meant no.
There probably aren't enough murderers around to seriously affect a vote.
You say that however there were 16,425 murders in 2019 in the US alone, now imagine if that's the case each year, that could have definitely swayed the recent presidential vote haha
Ooh, that's a lot. Maybe a better solution is to cut down on the number of murders, though? C:
@goaded I mean that would be ideal haha!
I'm doing my bit. I didn't kill anyone all day!
@goaded me too, just about made it through the whole day! It was a stressful one to say the least
As it stands, only felons lose the right to vote.
@Y2KxD Some people in some states are felons for things like smoking a joint in public. Should they be permanently banned from voting?
