RESTORING VOTING RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE ON PAROLE

 
 
 

New Yorkers on parole are currently denied the right to vote, despite raising families and paying taxes. Once their parole is completed, their voting rights may be restored, but they must re-register with the Board of Elections.

  • 16 states and D.C. restore voting after term of incarceration.

  • Over 44,000 citizens on parole, 3/4 of whom are black or Latino, are prevented from casting a ballot in all NY elections
