Will Bernie Sanders' Fight for Prison Voting Rights Help Democracy?

Bernie Sanders is fighting for voting rights for prisoners and his efforts could help democracy all around us. The 2020 presidential contender believes that prisoners have to feel like they are part of their democracy and should be able to vote while they are incarcerated. Elizabeth Warren, also aiming for that 2020 spot wants prisoners to be able to vote as soon as they served their time. Currently many formerly incarcerated people lose their ability to vote in elections after being convicted of a felony. Both Warren and Bernie are steps toward giving the incarcerated a right to right.

Do you think prisoners should have voting rights restored?
