Felony Conviction Does Not Bar Voting in Ohio
A felony conviction does not bar a person from voting in Ohio so long as the person is not currently incarcerated for the felony. This is true whether or not the person convicted of the felony is on probation or parole. A person who was incarcerated for a felony conviction must register to vote after release (even if previously registered) in order to vote. A person is also eligible to vote while incarcerated on a misdemeanor or felony charge awaiting disposition. Two convictions for violating Title 35 of the Ohio Revised Code (pertains to election law fraud) will permanently bar a person from voting in Ohio.
