RESTORE THE VOTE

OVERVIEW

On November 6, 2018, Florida Constitutional Amendment 4 was overwhelmingly approved by Florida Voters. Known as the Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative the amendment allows those convicted of felony offenses to have their voting rights restored upon completion of their sentence.

With several exceptions, most individuals will qualify to have their right to vote restored.

To restore their right to vote these individuals must complete their sentence (i.e., prison, parole, and probation) and make sure they owe no legal restitution or fines/fees and do not have any pending criminal charges.

For those with excessive fines and fees, we provide lawyers who will file motions to reduce or eliminate those costs.
