Restoration of Rights

Restoration of Rights

In Iowa, a person’s voter registration is cancelled if the person is convicted of a felony. Voting rights may be restored after completion of the sentence, any required probation, parole, or supervised release, and all court costs, fees, and restitutions have been paid.

The Governor's Office is responsible for the restoration of voting rights. For more information, call the Governor's Office at 515-281-5211 or visit their Restoration of Rights website.
