Are Your Rights Restored?
Anyone convicted of a felony in Virginia automatically loses their civil rights-right to vote, serve on a jury, run for office, become a notary public.The Constitution of Virginia gives the Governor the sole discretion to restore civil rights ( right to vote, serve on a jury, run for office, and become a notary). To be eligible for the restoration process, an individual must have been convicted of a felony, no longer be incarcerated, and be free from any supervised probation.
