How a Felon in Connecticut Can Restore Their Voting Rights

In order to restore your voting rights, a felon can once again vote after serving his prison sentence and parole and paying any applicable legal fees or fines. Once these criteria are met, he needs to contact the Registrars of Voters in the locale where he lives to obtain the required voter registration card.

Voter registration cards are available at the public library, DMV or any other registration agency. The card should be completed and submitted to the registrars of voters in person or by mail. The felon can once again vote with one exception.

If the felon has committed a felony that coincides with Title 9 Connecticut Election statutes, his electoral privileges will be revoked until said time when has met specific requirements (including the payment of connected fines for incarceration) and has been completely discharged from probation.
