The goal of our community outreach is to inform people with felony convictions and/or on parole, that they have the right to vote, and enabling them to exercise that right.

Our outreach is intended to inform people

  • of the importance of voting in every election
  • where they can learn more about the issues and candidates on their ballots
  • how they can register to vote and get an absentee ballot
  • how they can vote
