    Don't ya just love people who think they know what they are talking about?

    FYI - felons can vote and felons (under certain circumstances can get a felony expunged).

    In Illinois http://www.state.il.us/defender/exp.html

    People with qualifying arrests and convictions may petition the court of their sentencing county to expunge or seal their records. We can answer your questions regarding eligibility for expungement and sealing. We also have an information packet explaining the process and requirements for expunging/sealing of records. To contact us with questions, or to request a copy of the information packet, you may email, call or write us.

    must be done thru the courts in any state, then a judge has to approve it. It has to be a damn good reason to be expunged, i.e., someone else has been charged and you were now found innocent. Not likely but it is very hard to expunge any record. you will not gain any of your rights you lost with it being expunged. You already lost those and you will never get those back.

  • I thought felonies followed you forever, since convicted felons lose their right to vote.

    If you were convicted, it will probably follow you for the rest of your life.
