I lost my voting rights while in prison/on state parole. How do I regain my ability to vote?

You automatically regain your right to vote after you our no longer in prison and get off state parole (and for those who were involuntarily committed due to mental illness, after you are no longer involuntarily committed). All you have to do is register (or re-register) to vote before the next election (learn how on PG. 69).[248]
