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.

I agree. Once you have payed your debt to society your right to vote should be restored.

African Americans, in the deep south, are more likely to receive convictions of felonies than are whites. Racism is still a serious problem in the south, as Haley Barber has proven. This and poverty, poor people having poor lawyers, srubs the rolls of people who would probably vote for a Democrate rather than a Republican.
