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).

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.
