Can a convicted felon in Massachusetts vote?
Yes. Many felons in Massachusetts think they've permanently lost the right to vote and much of that misconception was created in the year 2000, when a successful ballot question removed the right to vote for convicted felons while they were serving their time. But as soon as a person is released, his or her right to vote is restored.

From state-to-state it can depend. The most commonly lost rights of a convicted felon are: the right to vote - the right to hold public office - the right to own/possess firearms. Some states are more stringent and add other restrctions - and if the felon is a convicted sex offender, their right to live in certain locations is severely limited.
