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.

Charlie Crist and the Florida Cabinet. Attorney General Bill McCollum cast the lone dissenting vote of the four-member group, which acted as the Board of Executive Clemency in taking up the rule at Crist's urging and making the historic change. Under the new rule, felons convicted of nonviolent crimes who have fulfilled their sentences will be allowed to vote, hold public office, apply for occupational licenses and sit on juries without applying for clemency, a cumbersome process that can take years. The new rule also will expedite the process for felons convicted of some violent crimes.

Can a convicted felon serve on a board in the state of New York?

convicted felons have essentially the same rights as those who have no conviction record with the exception to voting in some states, and possession of "firearms." The one right that is never discussed to which former felons have no right is protection from discrimination. So, while there is no specific law prohibiting a felon from serving on a board (provided that board is not over a healthcare facility or a school), the organization, business, minicipality, state or federal government can prohibit any felon from serving for no other purpose than that person was previously convicted. While felons have essentially the same rights as other citizens, they do not have the same protections.
