The OFA St Paul chapter is currently focusing on a project to help restore the vote to Minnesota citizens that are on probation or on parole due to a felony conviction. The goal of the Voting Rights Restoration Project is to raise awareness about this voter suppression issue, encourage all citizens to vote, and to work toward changing Minnesota law. Please join us in working on this important issue!

Did you know? Minnesotans with a felony conviction DO NOT have the right to vote unless they have finished all parts of their sentence and that includes any probation, parole, or supervised release. To learn more check out our INFORMATION SHEET.
Did you know? There is a bill at the MN House of Representatives that is stalled and has not been brought to a vote. The goal of this bill is to restore the right to vote to individuals with a felony conviction who are no longer incarcerated (but are still on parole or probation). Help us get this to a vote!
