To: Andrew Little, Justice Minister

Right to Vote for All

Reason for signing

  • A government that denies its prisoners the right to vote is a government that now has a vested interest in jailing its political opposition. Voting is a right, not a privilege to be taken away as a punishment, especially when disenfranchisement disproportionately affects those who are already disadvantaged by the system. If you are a citizen of this country, you have a vested interest in its future and your voice deserves to be heard.
