Abstract [en]

An extra punishment: On felony as a ground for voting restrictions

Even today there are a number of countries where convicted felons lose their voting rights, including the USA. Until 1937 this was also the case in Sweden, where many criminals and former criminals had no voting rights. This loss of voting rights was linked to a special sanction, which constituted a modernized variant of older provisions on “defamation”, “loss of honour” and “loss of civic trust” that were associated with certain crimes. The sanction was finally abolished in 1937, due to a new, more prevention- and treatment-oriented view of correctional care that became dominant in Sweden during the first half of the 20th century. It clashed with an older view of crime and punishment, where the shame of being convicted was seen as a supplementary part of the sentence. According to this new view, the public mistrust created by preventing previously convicted criminals from voting was regarded as an obstacle to the reintegration of former criminals to full citizenship and productivity.
