Abstract

Does mental illness render a person incompetent to vote? Two studies highlight the similarity of voting behavior between patients hospitalized in a community state hospital and citizens living in the community. The results of the studies appear to dispel any need to maintain separate laws that govern the voting rights of citizens who are hospitalized for mental illness.
