    Are prisons here to rehabilitate someone who errs against society? Or are they here as another profit-motivated industry to separate haves from have-nots? Denying voting rights (essentially permanently) to offenders is related to the concept of privatizing prisons. When criminality is part of the profit line, extra effort is made to get people into prisons (through stricter enforcement of penalties) and keep them there (through merciless parole boards). If there is money to be made from prisoners, you can bet someone will figure out how to make more prisoners.
    Vote for Second Chance and vote against privatizing prisons.
