It is inhumane to take away one of the core tenets of a democracy—voting.
No matter the offense, suffrage should never be infringed upon. Laws preventing or restricting convicted felons from voting are unbalanced, unfair and, frankly, unjust.
While Texas is not the best when it comes to these things, it isn’t one of the worst either. In Texas, after serving a term of incarceration, parole, supervision and probation, felons can register to vote once again. For once, Texas is not moving backwards or sliding towards its long-held conservative tenets.
