US is one of the very few anti-democratic country that denies inmates voting rights. After slavery was abolished it's way of denaying voting rights to certain people.

From the wiki:
Many countries allow inmates to vote. Examples include Australia, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Sweden, and Zimbabwe. In Germany, the law even calls on prisons to encourage prisoners to vote. Only those convicted of electoral fraud and crimes undermining the "democratic order", such as treason are barred from voting, while in prison

Perhaps it's because the NAACP has so many of it's people listed as felons and the Dems need every vote they can get?
