Quote From Prison Governors

The Prison Governors' Association and other senior managers in the prison service in England and Wales believe that voting rights and representation form part of the process of preparing prisoners for resettlement in their communities. They acknowledge that granting prisoners the right to vote would neither threaten public safety nor be difficult to implement, given arrangements for postal voting.

Why the contribution is important

I haven't seen any comments regarding what society would lose if all prisoners are allowed to vote!!

    Thanks for your comments @mikelees - if prisoners were given the right to vote in Welsh elections, do you have a view on whether their registered address should be the prison, their home address etc? What about those who may have been homeless prior to their imprisonment?
