How do felons make voting decisions?

I'm so glad to read posts here, wherein people are advocating for voters to consider something other than party when they go to the polls.

Voting for (or against) people because of their gender, or their skin color, or their possession or lack of certain body parts, is just as empty-headed an action as blindly voting based solely on party affiliation.

The policy beliefs of the candidate, and the voter's view of their trustworthiness, should be what they carry with them into the voting booth.

I wonder how the thousands of felons being registered to vote in Alabama are getting educated on the candidates' policies.

The stated goal of the people registering these felons is to turn Alabama "blue"... aka Democratic party majority. It evidently worked for them in Virginia.

Will felons consider a candidate's morality, or lack of morality, when they make their choices? Hmmmm....

Ironic? Hypocritical? Cynical?
