Restoration of Rights/ Felons


How can I get my voting rights restored?

Every voter has a right to participate in the voting process. Each month the Circuit Court provides the Election Board with a listing of people in our jurisdiction who have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor. This data is used to update the voter registration database.


In Missouri, individuals convicted of a felony are entitled to having their voting rights restored upon completion of their sentence, probation, and parole, as long as they were not convicted of an offense associated with voting or election fraud.
