As you know, this is a Presidential Election year and recently, you have had a run-in with the law. Voting is a right. Is it still your right if you are in jail, on probation, or on parole? Find out here.
Question: My partner is currently serving time in prison, and will still be there during the election. Can he/she vote?
Answer: No. Any person actively serving time during the election cannot vote.
Question: My partner will be out of prison and on parole during election. Can he/she vote?
Answer: No, any offender on parole during election time cannot vote. Once they are off parole, their voting rights will automatically be restored.
Question: Can my partner vote if he/she is on probation during election time?
Answer: Yes. Even if he/she is in jail as a probation condition, your partner can vote, regardless if he/she has a felony or misdemeanor conviction.
Question: Can my partner, who will be on mandatory supervision during election time, vote?
Answer: No. His/her voting rights will be restored upon completion of mandatory supervision.
Question: Can my partner, who will be on post-release community supervision during election time, vote?
Answer: No. His/her voting rights will be restored upon completion of community supervision.
Question: Can my partner, who will be in jail during election time, vote?
Answer: Yes, if your partner is still awaiting trial, is serving time for a misdemeanor conviction, or is on probation and is physically in jail during election time, he or she can vote.
In California, no action is needed to restore voting rights. They are restored automatically upon completion of prison time, parole, or supervision. As you can see, people in jail do have the opportunity to vote from inside jail, but why make them stay in jail when you and Salinas Bail Bond Store can help them bail out?
