"The process would begin at conviction. The convicted defendant would receive a coupon, good for incarceration for the duration of his term, which he would be required to redeem at a participating prison (sorry, no choice there). The set of participating prisons may or may not include private prisons. In fact, as I discuss below, choice is conceptually independent of privatization, and — even though some arguments for or against vouchers are often made with private providers in mind — one can talk about vouchers even without privatization."
