Vote for less serious crimes

In order to rehabiliate some less serious criminals, I think they should get the vote. This would help them feel like they are memebrs of the community before they are released.

In terms of very serious crimes that target 'individuals', such as murder, rape, GBH- Those people should not get the vote. They have commited very serious crimes, and should loose certain basic rights.

Why the contribution is important

We need to accept that prison is not always the most appropriate way of punishing criminals in less serious crimes.

Any process to reform the system in those circumstances should be considered and explored.

    Thanks for sharing your view @CardiffSteve - if prisoners were given the right to vote in Welsh elections, what method do you think should be used? (for example, a postal vote, electronically, mobile booths in the prison...or another method?)
