Can someone on probation vote?
With one exception, Connecticut law ALLOWS a person on probation to register and vote. This has been in effect since 2002. A person forfeits their right to vote upon conviction of a felony and commitment to any state or federal prison (CGS 9-46). The law allows the person's right to vote to be restored after they have paid all fines and completed any required prison and parole time. There is one exception - a person convicted of and imprisoned for an election-related felony under Title 9 of the General Statutes must ALSO complete any probation time before voting rights are restored (CGS 9-46a).
