A person convicted of a felony and under an order of imprisonment may restore their voting rights upon completion of probation and parole or, if on probation or parole, not have been incarcerated pursuant to the order within the last five years and not be under an order of imprisonment related to a felony conviction for election fraud or any other election offense pursuant to La. R.S. 18:1461.2.
To restore your voting rights after a felony conviction, you must appear in person at the Registrar of Voters office, complete a voter registration application and provide documentation (appropriate documentation provided by the Department of Corrections) to prove that you have completed your probation and/or parole or that you have not been incarcerated within the last five years and are not under an order of imprisonment related to a felony conviction for election fraud or any other election offense pursuant to La. R.S. 18:1461.2. If you are disabled and homebound, you may submit your application and documentation by mail, facsimile, commercial carrier or hand delivery.
