There are an estimated 6 million Americans who cannot vote in the country's elections because of some form of civil death. Depending on the state they live in, they might even lose their right to vote permanently, or for years after they are released from prison. While the US has come to see this form of civil death as status quo, it is actually rare for a democratic country to take away a citizen's voting rights after they leave prison, let alone forever.
