Loss of rights

 Once a person is imprisoned they lose the right to vote.

Why the contribution is important

This is an issue of whether being in prison is actually a punishment. You see inmates having access to all sorts of luxuries. Having the right to vote would only add to this.

    The right to vote is not a luxury John, it is a right which was hard fought for and should not be denied under any circumstances.

    Thanks for sharing your views with us @JohnCharles - do you think special considerations should apply to young offenders in custody if the voting age is lowered to 16 and 17 years olds?
