Disenfranchised Citizens

Although, according to the Constitution, voting is a universal right,
the number of disenfranchised citizens is higher than usually imagined.
Apart from self-exclusion, the article lists the various direct measures
of exclusion that affect adults under guardianship or prisoners,
and also indirect measures of exclusion linked to the lack of a fixed
address (homeless, nomadic groups…), to old age or handicap, or to
the distance from the voting station for French expatriates. As de facto
disenfranchisement is on the rise, because of the economic situation
and the growing number of dependent persons, it might be time to
engage in a general reflection about the nature and the regime of such
exclusions, which amount to a real loss of citizenship.
