New Hampshire bill aims to allow jailed felons to vote

New Hampshire prisoners could soon get the right to vote under a proposed measure that is heading for a full vote by the state Legislature.

At present, convicted felons in New Hampshire are eligible to vote only after their release from prison. If approved, the bill would put New Hampshire in the ranks of Maine and Vermont, the only two states where even convicted felons have the right to vote

Rep. Judith Spang (D-Durham), who co-sponsored the bill, said, “I don’t see any reason why people who are incarcerated should be deprived of their rights of citizenship.”
