24. Homeless voters can vote anywhere--for Pres/VP

Location of voting would only matter for offices responsible for limited districts (ie, basically all offices other than Pres/VP). But for Pres/VP, it shouldn't matter where you live.

Existing laws already provide for stripping voting rights on conviction.
You're right, it does incentivize partisan lawmakers to use the law maliciously. Ideally, there'd need to be a high bar to take away voting rights. High-degree felonies rather than mere misdemeanors, for example. And courts would need to work to try to reduce biases.
