Democracy means one vote for each person

Yes.  Democracy means, one vote each for every person. Where a person has caused harm, being in the prisons system itself is intended to punish them for their actions.  There is no justification for preventing them from voting as well. 

Why the contribution is important

People in the prison system deserve to have their vote counted.  Moreover, they have invaluable insight into what is currently wrong with our society, and thus, how society can be made better.

    Thanks for sharing your views with us @treaclemine - do you think all prisoners should be given the right to vote, regardless of the length of their sentence or the severity of the offence committed?

    Also, do you have a view on what method should be used if prisoners are given the right to vote? (for example, postal vote, electronically, mobile booths in prison...or another method?). At what address do you think a prisoner should be registered to vote?
