a question for the american members

My question is, why are convicted felons not allowed to vote?

I mean, what is intrinsicaly wrong with someone convicted of a felony that their vote is not wanted?

Also, when did the restriction start?

I am just curious because it still surprises me that the general population seems to be happy with the government taking certain people's right to vote away.
