Bernie Sanders Is Only 2020 Democrat To Support Enfranchising Inmates

Business Insider reports Sen.

Bernie Sanders is the only 2020 hopeful who supports giving the vote to all prisoners currently incarcerated, regardless of their crimes.

2020 Democratics are divided on the issue, while many support giving the vote to former inmates.

Maine and Vermont are the only two states in which currently incarcerated people can vote.

During a CNN town hall on Monday, Sanders was asked if he'd support voting rights for prisoners who were found guilty of rape or terrorism.
