Can convicted felons vote in California?
California allows former felons to vote, but the state prohibits voting by people incarcerated in prison or on parole. According to the California Constitution and Elections Code, "A person entitled to register to vote shall be a United States citizen, a resident of California, 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 a felony conviction can vote after completion of parole, while on probation,or if they are committed to county jail with a felony conviction. Yes felons can vote so get out there and let your voice be heard! Cecil B.

Can convicted felons vote in new york?
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.

Can felons vote?
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.
