find out if you can vote

confirm your status

The law in Alabama regarding which people with past convictions can and cannot vote has been historically confusing.

In 2017, the Alabama Legislature passed a new law clarifying the rules and likely enfranchising tens of thousands or more Alabamians. Follow the steps below to determine if you are qualified for mandatory rights restoration.

You may be eligible for a pardon

You are not eligible for a CERV, but you may be able to restore your right to vote by seeking a pardon from the Board of Pardons and Paroles.

If you have a conviction of murder, rape, sodomy, sexual abuse or sexual abuse against children, you may be eligible. If you were convicted of treason, impeachment or if a death sentence has been imposed and not commuted, you are not eligible.

If you are prevented from restoring your right to vote because you cannot afford to pay your fees and fines, please contact us if you'd like to discuss your options further.
