Typically, voting rights are reinstated after a felon has served his time and completed parole or probation. In Article V, Section 2, the state Constitution states, per Alaska Statue 15.05.030, that felons involved of a crime involving moral turpitude lose their right to voice while under sentence, or when incarcerated or on probation or parole. Rights are restored after the entire sentence and probation and parole have been completed.

Felon Voting Law in Alaska

After a felon completes his sentence, he is allowed to vote, provided he has also completed the parole and probation segments for restitution. Unlike other states, where restoration of voting rights may include a specific appeal to an office in the state, the felon only needs to register again with the Division of Elections. You can obtain general details by clicking this link.

How a Felon in Alaska Can Restore Their Voting Rights

If you are no longer serving a sentence and have received an unconditional discharge from supervision of the Department of Corrections, you only need to complete the Voter Registration for the state to reinstate your rights.

In turn, the Alaska Division of Elections must receive proof from someone supervising the discharge of your incarceration. If you have not received discharge papers or a letter to this effect, you need to contact your parole or probation office to complete the form for submittal with your application to vote.
