How does a felon get voting rights restored?
Visit the website for the Florida Commission on Offender Review to obtain rules, procedures, and forms. The site also includes information on how to apply for restoration of rights, search for rights grants, and contact staff at the commission.
As to those offenders not covered by the amendment, namely those convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense or those who
have not completed all terms of their sentence, the restoration of the right to vote, to sit on a jury, and to hold public office can only
be obtained through application to the Board of Executive Clemency.
