Step 3 -- Obtaining a certificate allowing voter registration
If you have been disfranchised (that is, barred from voting) because of a felony conviction, you may apply to the Board of Pardons and Paroles for a Certificate of Eligibility for Voter Registration. If you have one of the following convictions, the Board cannot issue a Certificate:
In addition, you must not have any pending felony cases, must not owe any court ordered monies on disqualifying cases, must not owe any supervision fees, and must not be under sentence (off of probation, parole, not incarcerated, etc). This applies to either Certificates or Pardons.
If you meet the criteria, an investigation will be completed and a voting rights restoration certificate will be issued.
If you have been convicted of one of the crimes listed above, you may still be eligible for a pardon. Contact the Board.
