Restoration of Voting Rights

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 website also includes information on how to apply for restoration of rights, search for rights grants, and contact staff at the commission.

 With the passage of Amendment 4 in the November 2018 General Election, the Clemency Board will temporarily postpone consideration of pending applications for restoration of civil rights while the new framework required to implement the constitutional changes is defined, which may include the need for implementing legislation in the upcoming legislative session. The Clemency Board will continue to process and hear pending applications for other forms of clemency, including commutations, pardons, restoration of firearm authority, remission of fines or forfeitures, and restoration of alien status.
