I committed a felony many years ago. Can I vote?

If you have been convicted of a felony in Virginia you can only vote if you’ve had your voting rights restored by the Governor.  If you were convicted in another state, your rights may have been restored by other authority.  For more information on the Restoration of Rights process, go to the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website, or call our office at 434-970-3250.
