Voter’s Rights Concerning Felony Convictions

If you have been convicted only of a misdemeanor, you can register and vote. You do not need any special documentation to show that you are eligible to vote. Just use the same registration form that everyone else uses.

You Need to Re-Register:

  1. If you move out of the County
  2. If you move within the county
