Voting Rights Restoration

In Nebraska, people previously convicted of a felony must wait an additional two years past the completion of their sentence – including probation and parole – to vote.

Myth

When charged with a crime, you lose your voting rights permanently.

Fact

If you are convicted of a felony in Nebraska, your voting rights are restored two years after the conclusion of your sentence.

Upon a felony conviction, most states only temporarily suspend voting rights, and the duration of the suspension varies from state to state.

Nebraska is one of the few states to withhold voting rights beyond the completion of a sentence for a felony conviction. In Nebraska, people previously convicted of a felony must wait an additional two years past the completion of their sentence – including probation and parole – to vote. 

While some argue that the waiting period gives people previously convicted of a felony a chance to prove that they are reformed, waiting periods like these can cause those with previous convictions to feel excluded from their communities and impact their ability to reintegrate into society.
