Clemency Application Information
Restoration of Voting Rights Without a Clemency Application
- The Voting Restoration Amendment known as Amendment 4 restores voting rights to felony offenders, except those convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense, “upon completion of all terms of sentence including parole or probation.” Art. VI, § 4(a), Fla. Const. (2020); § 98.0751, Fla. Stat. (2020).
- Completion of all terms of sentence requires the completion of any outstanding legal financial obligations—fines, restitution, costs, and fees—ordered by the sentencing court.
- A clemency application is not required for the Restoration of Voting Rights pursuant to Amendment 4.
