FAQ: Can a felon vote in Texas?

Following release, many convicted felons have questions about their voting rights. At the library, we get these types of questions so frequently that we decided to address them on our frequently asked legal questions page.

In addition to answering the question "Can a felon vote in Texas?", our library also provides several other resources for ex-offenders.

The Restrictions on Convicted Felons Collection brings together the many statutes, administrative rules, state court rules, and federal court rules that place further restrictions on convicted felons and our Re-Entry Resources for Ex-Offenders guide provides resources to help those who have been incarcerated re-enter society.

Remember, if you have questions about voting (or anything else) you can always Ask a Librarian!
