Hernando County Elections Office Prepares for Enactment of Amendment 4

- Advertisement -

Hernando County Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson is preparing for the implementation of Amendment 4 which restores the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after theyhave completed all terms of their sentence including parole, probation and restitution costs.

Convicted felons who have completed their sentence, including parole and probation are eligible and will have their rights automatically restored on January 8, 2019. However, those convicted of murder or sexual offenses are not able to register to vote unless the Governor and Cabinet vote to restore their rights on a case by case review.

Voters who have been unable to vote due to felony convictions must re-register. If you are unsure of your voting rights status you should contact the Clerk of Court in the county where you were sentenced or the Florida Department of Corrections where you were supervised or incarcerated.

Please do not complete a voter registration application unless you are sure you have completed all terms of your sentence, advises Supervisor Anderson.
