They are trying to take away our Constitutional right to vote regardless of being a criminal or not that is our right

So, felons should be able to own guns too? After all, that's a constitutional right as well. Try serving your sentence first.

Just because you're incarcerated they're still citizens of the United States and we should not take that away from them constitutionally

This is about the stupidest law I have ever seen Liberal Democrats come up with. Just another way for Democrats to continue destroying Oregon. It's all about gaining more Democratic voters. Shame on all of you.

Regardless of your criminal status you're taking away the constitutional right of civilians and that's not okay they have the right to vote regardless

The government wants to take away many of the freedoms and rights of law abiding citizens, and now they want to give criminals the right to Vote. This says a lot about the lack of moral compass and lack of integrity In our government.

Absolutely no. They lost their rights when they committed a crime. This is just another stupid politically motivated law.

Prisoners should not have the right to vote. They already had made a bad choice in life. We are already facing state and government problems without their vote. I dont need any criminal choosing whats best for us and our children.

Absolutely not! They lost that right when they broke the law. Plus, I'm pretty sure their voting rights are restored after they serve their sentence.

They are incarcerated & should NOT BE ALLOWED WHILE THEY ARE ON THE INSIDE. A dumb ideal!! They can vote when They are out and a part of society.

One of the consequences of being a scourge of society is you loose your right to vote. Keep it that way.

Only after they've completed their jail sentence and paid all fines and/or restitution.

Of course not, that is absurd. Criminals, illegal aliens, non citizens, thats bizarre nonsense. The leftest D A s are letting dangerous criminal back on the streets before their trials, this is insane, and twisted. A criminal waives those rights when committing a crime, period!

When a person commits a felony they have demonstrated that they cannot function in a civil society and therefore forfeit their right to vote. This looks like another Democrat attempt to harvest votes.

Criminals have lost that privilege! It's outrageous to consider giving that back to them. We need proper law-abiding citizens to help guide this country, not criminals!

Voting is a privilege; a privilege properly exercised at the voting booth, not from a prison cell. States have a significant interest in reserving the vote for those who have abided by the social contract that forms the foundation of a representative democracy. We are talking about rapists, murderer

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
