Should convicted felons regain the right to vote?
from The Bulletin's Front Page

Final poll results
Charges of fraudulent voting were dismissed against a convicted felon in North Platte recently. Jeff Meyer, Lincoln County Attorney, said new charges against the man may not be filed. Meyer said he may not re-file charges because the information contained on the discharge papers indicate that Burke's rights had been reinstated. Meyer isn't sure he agrees with the law when convicted felons, after they are done with their sentences, are not allowed to vote. A convicted felon in Nebraska loses the right to vote. A growing number of states, nine in the past several years, are allowing convicted felons to regain their voting rights. What do you think? Should felons who have served their time retain the right to vote in elections?
  Yes - They've paid their debt to society. 514 31%
  No - They lost their chance when they were convicted. 587 36%
  For nonviolent offenders only. 533 33%
