This is what should happen. These citizens served their time and are still citizens of the United States. Why would they not be able to vote?

Aaaaand let me guess, they'll all vote Democrat. Cause I can guarantee you that Beshear only gave them back their voting rights is because he wants more dem voters

Fine by me. It's a step towards a greater prison reform. The state can't be destroying people's lives and silence their voice because they fucked up. I think I'm okay with violent felons continuing to have no vote.
