Voting Rights of Ex-Felons

Missouri’s state statute 115.133.1 doesn’t allow you to vote while you’re serving a felony sentence or still on probation.

However: after you have served your time and completed your probation, you can register to vote like anyone else. There is a box you must check on the voter registration form, stating that you have had a felony conviction. That will NOT prevent your registration from going through. That simply informs the County Clerk that the staff needs to look up your name and make sure your probation is complete.

If you have any questions about how to register, call County Clerk at 886-4375.
