No way

If the offender for any crime is ready to break the law and is prepared for everyone who pays tax to pay for them to be in prison and have food water shower and a place to sleep . They should not have a vote as they broke the law the things that keep us safe and keep us all on the same level , a prisoner has broken the law and has potentially ruined someone else’s life so they don’t deserve the rights to have a voice in the community until they have finished their sentence in prison . 

Why the contribution is important

The prison system keeps the public safe and keeps the law keepers away from the majority of the law breakers so I believe you should read my explanation I am only 16 ! I still have an opinion and a right to have my voice heard as I have not broken the law and had to go through the prison systems. Prisoners can have the vote after they leave as they have  had their sentence and then have their rights back

    Hi @Jules2803 - thanks very much for sharing your views with us. It's very much appreciated! What do you think about young offenders in custody? (if the voting age is lowered to 16 and 17 year olds) do you think any special considerations should apply?
