Regaining Your Voting Rights

Losing your voting rights due to a felony conviction can feel like losing a crucial part of your civic identity. However, the state provides pathways for individuals to restore their voting rights and reclaim their voice in the democratic process. The Law Office of Erin Bradley McAleer specializes in guiding clients through this process, ensuring they understand their rights and the steps involved in restoring their voting rights.

Understanding the Loss of Voting Rights

Individuals lose their voting rights when they are convicted of a felony. This disenfranchisement continues until the completion of all terms of their sentence, including prison, parole, and probation. Once these conditions are met, individuals are generally eligible to have their voting rights restored.

Steps to Restore Voting Rights

Completion of Sentence:

The first requirement for restoring voting rights is the full completion of all terms of your felony sentence. This includes serving any time in prison and completing all parole or probation requirements. Our legal team can help verify that you have met these conditions.

Understanding Automatic Restoration:

In Washington, voting rights are automatically restored once all terms of the felony sentence are completed. However, it is crucial to ensure that there are no outstanding legal or financial obligations related to your conviction.

Re-registering to Vote:

After your rights are restored, you must re-register to vote. This can be done online, by mail, or in person. Our office can assist you in completing and submitting the necessary forms to ensure that your registration is processed smoothly.

Addressing Any Discrepancies:

If there are any issues or discrepancies that arise during the restoration process, such as outstanding fines or court costs, our attorneys will work with you to resolve them and ensure that your rights are fully restored.
