Felons should not be allowed to vote while in the corrections system. They should lose voting rights until they have completed their sentences.

A person convicted of any felon should lose the right to vote for 20 years.

They also shouldn't be allowed to access any state aid programs either for 5 years after the end of a sentence or probation.

Some people don't have representation in Jefferson City to protest allowing Felons to vote. Once it was a Representative who couldn't keep his pants zipped. Now, a Senator is missing.

I can see restoring voting privilidges, once the punishment has been enforced. Not probation or parole,
Not just prison time.
