Per state statute, clients are not entitled to vote while on Probation or Parole for a felony conviction or while confined in an institution. Those on supervision solely for a Suspended Impositions of Sentence (SIS) are allowed to vote as these are not considered convictions. Upon being discharged from supervision, most clients are eligible to have these rights restored. This may be done at the local election authority, Department of Revenue or by mail at a participating state agency. More information may be obtained by contacting the Board of Elections at (800) 669-8683.
