How do Sex Offenders Vote?

3 11 2009

How can sex offenders vote in Chesapeake? Many voting precincts are located inside of school buildings while school is in session. Don’t get me wrong, most sex offenders are what they are for a reason: they were found guilty of a crime. They still, however, have the right to vote. Chesapeake Public Schools prohibits sex offenders from being on school property. The interior of the school is not always secured from those that are voting. Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Portsmouth, and Hampton all close their schools for Election Day. Why not Chesapeake? For a security standpoint, this is a very risky move. Is security not the top priority?

If the sex offender commented a felony then he has no rights to vote unless his rights have been restored. I believe the majority if not all crimes that cause a person to be on the sex offenders registry are classified as a felony. Please correct me if I am wrong.
