Feedback at 5:00: Voting Policy For Convicted Felons

Posted: Updated:

Recently, Attorney General Eric Holder called for states to ease rules restricting voting by felons.

Currently, 11 states bar felons from voting, even after their sentences are served.

Here in Michigan, voting rights are restored after a release from prison.  

Holder argues disenfranchisement laws unfairly penalize American citizens who have paid their debt to society.

Do you think states should change their policies on allowing convicted felons to vote? Why or why not?
