There is no rational basis behind what ends up qualifying as a felony or
not. Each state has different and frankly, arbitrary rules about what
constitutes a felony as opposed to a misdemeanor. There are people in New
York who are convicted of felonies because they were carrying small
carpenters knives that are sold at Home Depot for construction work, which
is technically illegal if the knife flips out.

And there is no reason that people who do have serious felonies shouldn't
be able to vote. They are affected by the laws that resulted in their
current status. Any functioning democracy would consider their opinion.
Perhaps that's why America doesn't.
