Voting with a Criminal Record in Georgia

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  • You are serving a felony First Offender or Conditional Discharge sentence and the status has not been revoked.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

IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, CLICK HERE TO REGISTER ONLINE. If you prefer a paper registration form, email Ann@GJP.org to have one mailed to you.

LONG PROBATION SENTENCE? If you have served at least three years on probation, you may qualify for early termination. See GJP.org/probation for criteria and how to pursue early termination. If your probation is terminated, you can vote.
