The alabama voting rights project


The purpose of the Alabama Voting Rights Project has been to re-enfranchise thousands of Alabamians who are eligible to register to vote or who are eligible to have their rights to vote restored by obtaining a Certificate of Eligibility to Register to Vote (CERV).

Campaign Legal Center and Southern Poverty Law Center are committed to assisting individuals through the rights restoration project, training community leaders and groups on rights restoration, and pushing for better policy to allow people with past convictions to vote.

From June 2018-June 2019, the Alabama Voting Rights Project assisted thousands of individuals through the voting rights restoration process across the state. Perhaps more importantly, we trained thousands of community leaders and activists on rights restoration. Those individuals are members of countless community groups that are engaged in voter restoration activities. If you are interested in volunteering to help people with past convictions navigate the rights restoration process, please reach out to one of our local partners.
