According to Florida Statutes, a felony conviction affects the right to vote in Florida (Sections 97.041, 97.053, 97.055, Florida Statutes). A person convicted of a felony is not eligible to vote in Florida unless his or her voting rights have been restored. To vote in Florida, a person who has been convicted of a felony must:
- Have his or her voting rights restored, and
- Register to vote in Florida by the book closing deadline.
After confirming that your rights have been restored, you must register to vote by completing a Florida Voter Registration Application .
