Look Who Get’s Priority in Voting!

I am for restoring voting rights to most convicted felons after they have served their time and are positively contributing to society in some way. I think of Charles Colson convicted of crimes connected to Watergate back in the 70s and who now presides over a successful prison ministry and is a syndicated columnist as an example. I am against voting rights for all felons while serving prison sentences. The fact that those serving time in Cook County, Illinois prisons received hand delivered voting ballots, while it looks like some of our men and women serving in the armed forces overseas may not receive voting ballots in time for the November 2nd election is unconscionable.
