GJP believes that regaining one’s right to vote is a critical part of the reentry process and works to ensure Georgians with a criminal record know their voting rights.

You CAN VOTE in Georgia if:

  • You are not currently serving a sentence for a felony conviction.
  • You are "off paper" (completed incarceration, parole and probation). 
  • You are serving a felony First Offender or Conditional Discharge sentence and the status has not been revoked.
  • Your sentence is complete - your right to vote is automatically restored. You just need to re-register in order to vote.
  • You meet other requirements for voting and are registered
