Voting

You lose your right to vote while you are in prison or on parole for a felony conviction. If you are convicted of a felony and you are released from prison and are no longer on parole, you can vote. If you are convicted of a felony and your sentence is suspended, you can vote. If you are convicted of a felony and there was no prison sentence, you can vote. Your right to vote is automatically returned to you once you are out of state prison and off of parole. All you have to do is register, or re-register to vote.

If you want to vote while you are still on parole for a felony conviction, you can get a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities.

All other criminal convictions do not take away your right to vote. So, misdemeanor and violation convictions do not prevent you from voting even if you are serving time in jail.
