WA Office | Protecting Convicted Voters

| GOVERNMENT | HOME OFFICE | FOREIGN OFFICE | WA OFFICE | DISPATCHES |

The WA Office disagrees with the proposition that those who have defrauded or undermined the electoral system criminally ought to be permitted to vote even while their sentences are being served.

The author of this proposal repealed GA 419 'Voting Equality for Freed Inmates' on the grounds that it prohibited the World Assembly from requiring member nations to extend suffrage to prisoners. We then opposed the repeal, saying "the right to vote is core to a person's relationship with a democratic society. It would be proportionate for such a society to strip such rights from those who would undermine it for the duration of their punishment".

Our view so remains; in that light, we recommend a vote against "Protecting Convicted Voters" and hope for reinstatement of a policy similar to that in (now-repealed) GA 419.

Primary author(s): Imperium Anglorum.

Why was I tagged?!

Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes and oft-ignored RMB messages.

The above tags were generated automatically by InfoEurope.

You can opt out of tagging by sending a telegram to the Office's WA Secretary or the Undersecretary for Communications. Current staffing information is located in the "STAFF" tab at the top of this page.
