Formerly Incarcerated and Voting

The 2016 election campaign drama reminds me of what I used to tell the prisoners when they said their family  did not vote since their social situations never changed - no matter who won the election.  I would respond that if their family members did not vote, then   the voters would always be the winners. I  urged them to encourage family members to vote because that at least meant they had a seat at the table, even if  sometimes their party of choice did not win.
