Are you registered to vote? If not and eligible, register now!!!

The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) which is the foundation of  human rights treaties of the United Nations states in Article 21 that everyone can vote. This includes people in prison.

Later,  this was expressed legally in Article 25 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) which almost all countries support. See you-tube Prisoners Register to Vote in South Sudan.

Are there other countries that allow people in prison to vote? There does not seem to be an official list  but we have tried to put together a list.

Our list of countries is the following: Albania, Austria,  Bangladesh, Bosnia, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway,  Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Romania, Serbia,  Slovenia, South Africa, South Sudan,  Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine and Zimbabwe.

More  other countries are moving in our direction.  For examples, Vermont, Maine and Puerto Rico allow voting by people in  prison in the United States while  even China allows  some prisoners to vote.
