Prisoners to get the vote for the first time in UK – maybe one day other countries would follow?

Prisoners will be given the vote in general elections for the first time in
140 years after David Cameron conceded there was nothing he could do to halt
a European court ruling demanding the change, The Daily Telegraph can
disclose.

Thanks to a ruling in the European Court of Human Rights UK prisoners will now, against the wish of the government, get to vote.

If only countries like US (where in some states convict don’t even get their votes back after they finish their sentances!), Russia, Japan and India would take some inspiration.
