My topic is based on ex-felons not permitted to vote after they have completed their sentencing obligations. I need a thorough background on Felon disenfranchisement. My theoretical foundation is labeling theory, I need studies that indicate how labeling and stigmatization affect an individual’s ability to identify as a citizen. Additionally, I need the analysis to tie labeling theory to felony disenfranchisement. My subheading under the literature review needs studies that support felony disenfranchisement is a stigma stemming from the label and not the behavior. I have attached a copy of the qualitative checklist as it pertains to the content that is to be included. I am also attaching am an incomplete version of my literature review.
