Starting January 8, 1.4 million Floridians with completed sentences will be able to register to vote, the single-biggest enfranchisement of voting rights since passage of the 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
If you or a loved one are planning to register, make sure to connect with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC) on Facebook and at https://floridarrc.com/. They successfully passed Amendment 4 to automatically restore the rights of 1.4 million returning citizens. They are led by directly impacted people, and will stand up for your rights.
If you or someone you know faces problems registering to vote or has questions call 1-877-MYVOTE-0 (1-877-698-6830) for direct assistance, or let the ACLU of Florida know. A helpful one-page document for eligible voters is available from FRRC.
To check whether or not the terms of a sentence have been completed (including probation, parole and financial obligations) you may check with these organizations for more information:
Florida Department of Law Enforcement
Florida Commission on Offender Review
Florida Clerks of County Courts
Florida Department of Corrections
