New York Times Calls for Repeal of Laws that Bar Ex-Felons from Registering to Vote

The print edition of The New York Times of February 12 has this editorial, calling on all states to enable ex-felons to register to vote.

There are three fairly large groups of legally competent adult citizens who are not permitted to vote freely in parts of the United States: (1) ex-felons; (2) residents of territories (and, to a lesser extent, residents of the District of Columbia); (3) supporters of minor party and independent candidates.

    How many of those ex-felons were convicted of treason, murder, home invasion, terrorism, etc. — i.e. any of the olde common law felonies ???

    i.e. NO more LIFE punishments for MAJOR crimes ???

    There is no such thing as an ex-felon.

    Residents of territories are permitted to vote for the government of their territory and local government. Territories are not “parts” of the United States.
