I came across this conditional in LSAT Powerscore

"No citizen can be denied the right to vote."

I charted it as "If a person is citizen, then he has right to vote" and thus C(Citizen)--> RTV(Right to Vote)
whereas
LSAT charted this same conditional as "If this person is a citizen, then they cannot be denied the right to vote" and thus C(Citizen)--> Not DRTV(Denied Right to Vote).

I am slightly concerned about the oversimplification I have done in my sentence. Does it has any hidden glitches or fallacies?

I think the meaning is actually subtly different, but I doubt it would lead you astray on a GMAT question.

Just as an example, maybe you can waive your right to vote. Now you don't have the right, but you haven't been denied the right.

Basically, you are saying the verb "denied", if enforced by myself(self-denial) will lead to non-validity of the logic involved in the sentence posed by me.
