Yes, convicted felons can vote in the State of New York if they are no longer in jail and no longer on parole. In other words, if you committed a felony, came out of jail, and you are no longer on parole, you can vote. Thing is, the ex-offender must re-register to vote. Plus, because this not common knowledge in New York, most convicted felons believe that they have lost the right to vote forever. Disenfranchising American felons is allowed in some states, but not New York State.
