Editor's Notes

  1. Edits: * added language as to being registered to vote * deleted language as to by December 31 st of the 18 th year as this refers to pre-registering * added relevant information as to being 18 by the date of the election for which voting.
  2. Edit: New Slide- thought it would be helpful
  3. Edits: Original slide stated you can vote if you are on probation even if you are on probation for a felony conviction. This is an oversimplification of the law. Slide revised to refer to misdemeanors and felonies, include reference to probation, conditional discharge, shock probation or shock conditional discharge- often referred to as split sentence, and local conditional release. Tried to be clearer as to imprisonment being completed. Not sure if should distinguish out of state crime constituting a felony in NYS
  4. Edits: Deleted language referring only to prison sentence Added language referring to felons and if still serving sentence of imprisonment and have received a certificate of relief from disabilities or certificate of good conduct
  5. Question: Does Board of Parole give everyone issued a certificate the right to vote?
  6. Edit: Made changes consistent with Election Law §5-106(2)
  7. Edit: Added reference to felony conviction and certificate.
  8. Question: Does Board of Parole give everyone issued a certificate the right to vote?
  9. Edit: New slide to ensure offenders know of need to register, check registration and reregister if necessary
  10. Edit: Made reference to conditional discharge Also clarified as to if serving a sentence of imprisonment with respect to probation or conditional discharge, there is a need to secure a necessary certificate to vote.
  11. Edit: Made reference to conditional discharge Also clarified as to if serving a sentence of imprisonment with respect to probation or conditional discharge, there is a need to secure a necessary certificate to vote.
  12. Edit: Minor edit.
  13. Edit: Added reference to felony conviction.
  14. Edit: Added reference to felony conviction.
  15. Edit: Revised second bullet.
