Convicted felons have NEVER had a 'right' to vote.
California allows former felons to vote, but the state prohibitsvoting by people incarcerated in prison or on parole. According tothe California Constitution and Elections Code, "A person entitledto register to vote shall be a United States citizen, a resident ofCalifornia, not in prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony,and at least 18 years of age." (Cal. Const. Art. II, Sec. 4; Cal. Elec.Code Sec. 2101) This means that California residents who have afelony conviction can vote after completion of parole, while onprobation,or if they are committed to county jail with a felonyconviction.Yes felons can vote so get out there and let your voice be heard!Cecil B.

Those members of it who were citizens, and weren't felons, were allowed to. (I'm not implying that any of them are felons, just saying that felons aren't allowed to vote; I know some of his family members are not US citizens, so they wouldn't have been allowed to vote either.)
Maine and Vermont are the only states that allow convicted felons to vote while in prison. (by absentee ballot) Other states allow convicted felons to vote after they served their terms and in some states they lose their right to vote permanently.
Depends if they are currently in jail
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.
Convicted felons DO have the right to vote in MI, unless you are confined to prison.

California has several agencies available to help felons throughout the state obtain employment. Some of these agencies include the California Employment Development Department and the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency.
That would be California.
That depends on which state they reside in. Some allow felons to vote even while incarcerated, while others never restore voting rights, even after the sentence is completed. A bill called the Democracy Restoration Act has recently been introduced in Congress, to make restoration of voting rights to ex-felons a nationwide matter.Felons lose their right to vote upon conviction in most states. However, once their sentence has been served, they have the right to apply to restore the right to vote.
No. People cannot vote while incarcerated. Although, contrary to popular belief, felons can vote once they are released from prison.
