Felony Record? We get this question alot. Yes, you can vote! What is required is that your sentence must be completely over. This means no remaining probation or parole, and it applies even if you have more than one prior felony. Anyone who has not voted in 2 consecutive years has likely been removed from the voter rolls and will need to re-register.
ONE QUESTION we can't answer . . . Why would any adult age 18 or over not want to vote in any election, especially one as big as this one?
HERE'S A BIT OF INFO you may not know: If you are age 17 and will turn 18 before the next election (which is this one!) you can register now.
