    Oklahoma restoration of rights

    Is anyone familiar with the rules in OK for restoration of rights? I'd also love to get a reference to the applicable code.

    No, I'm not a felon. This is for a friend who needs the reference for work.

    Thanks.

    seems like this is the plan just to restore voting rights is all,No Gun Rights
    FELONS


    Every state has a different process

    VOTING RIGHTS NOT TAKEN AWAY (PRISONERS MAY VOTE):

    Maine

    Vermont

    VOTING RIGHTS RESTORED AFTER RELEASE FROM PRISON:

    District of Columbia

    Hawaii

    Illinois

    Indiana

    Massachusetts: Until 2000, inmates were allowed to vote. Voters passed a constitutional amendment that instead allows voting rights to be restored after release from prison.

    Michigan

    Montana

    New Hampshire

    North Dakota

    Ohio

    Oregon

    Pennsylvania

    South Dakota

    Utah

    VOTING RIGHTS RESTORED AFTER RELEASE FROM PRISON AND COMPLETION OF PAROLE:

    California

    Colorado

    Connecticut: In 2001, then-Gov. John Rowland signed into law a bill extending voting rights to felons on probation.

    New York

    VOTING RIGHTS RESTORED AFTER COMPLETION OF PROBATION, PRISON, AND PAROLE:

    Alaska

    Arkansas

    Georgia

    Idaho

    Kansas: In 2002, the Legislature added probationers to the category of felons excluded from having voting rights restored.

    Louisiana

    Minnesota

    Missouri

    Nebraska: In March 2005, the Legislature repealed the lifetime ban on all felons and replaced it with a two-year post-sentence ban. Gov. Dave Heineman vetoed the bill but was overriden by the Legislature.

    New Jersey

    New Mexico: In 2001, the Legislature adopted a bill repealing the state's lifetime ban on ex-felon voting. In 2005, a bill was passed that requires the Department of Corrections to provide notification of completion of sentence to the Secretary of State's Office.

    North Carolina

    Oklahoma

    Rhode Island

    South Carolina

    Texas

    West Virginia

    VOTING RIGHTS FOR SOME FELONY CONVICTIONS ONLY RESTORED BY THE GOVERNMENT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS:

    Arizona: Two-time ex-felons must wait two years before applying for a certificate of discharge. First time felons are automatically restored rights after completing prison, probation and parole.

    Delaware: In June 2000, the General Assembly passed a constitutional amendment restoring voting rights to some ex-felons five years after the completion of their sentence.

    Maryland: In 2002, the Legislature repealed its lifetime ban on two-time ex-felons, with the exception of felons with two violent convictions, and imposed a three-year waiting period after completion of sentence before rights can be restored.

    Mississippi

    Nevada: In 2003, the state approved a provision to automatically restore voting rights for first-time non-violent felons immediately after completion of sentence.

    Tennessee

    Washington: In 2005, several bills were introduced on the issue. A bill that would restore voting rights to felons who completed their sentence but have not paid back outstanding debts never was brought to the floor for a vote. Another bill that would lower the interest rate on the debt owed by felons also failed. Several election reform-related bills signed into law include provisions that requires those convicted of felonies to be notified of their loss of rights and how to regain them, and requires the Department of Corrections to provide notification of completion of sentence to the Secretary Of State's Office.

    Wyoming: In 2003, Gov. Dave Freudenthal signed into law a bill allowing people convicted of a non-violent first-time felony to apply for restoration of voting rights five years after completion of sentence.

    VOTING RIGHTS DENIED TO ALL WITH FELONY CONVICTIONS, UNLESS GOVERNMENT APPROVES INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS RESTORATION:

    Alabama: In 2003, Gov. Bob Riley signed into law a bill that permits most felons to apply for a certificate of eligibility to register to vote after completing their sentence

    Florida

    Iowa: On June 17, 2005, Gov. Tom Vilsack said that on July 4, he would sign an order restoring the voting rights of convicted felons who have served their sentences.

    Kentucky: In 2001, The Legislature passed a bill that requires the Department of Corrections to inform and aid eligible offenders in completing the restoration process to regain their voting rights.

    Virginia: Felons convicted of non-violent offenses can apply for the restoration of their voting rights after three years; felons convicted of violent offenses must wait five years.
