#2248: Re.#2228: Should the Diaspora be allowed to vote? Wharram comments
From: Bruce Wharram <email@example.com>
Jude states two things that he says the diaspora should do:
1. Not have given up their citizenship.
2. Fly down to Haiti to vote.
The question of the diaspora being allowed to vote does not relate to
those who have given up their citizenship. If they give given up their
citizenship, they have given up any rights that would go along with
citizenship, including the right to vote.
To the best of my knowledge, U.S. citizens who are out of the country at
election time are allowed to vote by absentee ballot, without having to
fly home to vote. At this point in time Haitian citizens who are out of
the country are not allowed this privilege of citizenship. This is the
question at hand.
