Those who are incarcerated are still citizens
People are incarcerated for a host of reasons. This does not diminish their status as citizens - they should retain their right to vote.
Citizens should have the right to vote, and those incarcerated should not be any different.

The right to vote is part of the fundamental backbone of a democracy. Without this right, we are nothing. The state should not be able to take this right away because of someone's actions, especially when over 50% of felonies are non-violent.
Voting is not a right that is afforded to everyone. It is not ratified in the Constitution, and some people are unable to vote such as those under 18 or those who are not citizens. While voting may be an important part of democracy, this is not the same is being something that should inherently be afforded to everyone.
