Some who have been convicted of felonies, after serving their sentence and being released regain their right to vote in presidential elections. Some, and mostly in southern states, never regain their right to vote. I think this should be corrected, making the rules for presidential election universal nation wide.

This and poverty, poor people having poor lawyers, srubs the rolls of people who would probably vote for a Democrate rather than a Republican.
