MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg says he doesn't believe convicted criminals in prison should be able to vote. The South Bend, Indiana, mayor said Monday at a CNN town hall that part of the punishment when someone is convicted of a crime is losing certain rights. That stands in stark contrast to the position taken earlier Monday by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who said he believes a right to vote "is inherent to our democracy," – "even for terrible people."
