Donald Trump could still vote after his conviction in New York if he is not in prison on Election Day

Denverdonald trump may have been convicted of a serious crime and reside in Florida, a state famous for restricting the voting rights of people convicted of serious crimes. But you can still vote. As long as you are not in prison in the state of NY.

This is because Florida defers to other states’ disenfranchisement rules for residents convicted of felonies out of state. In Trump’s case, New York law only deprives people convicted of serious crimes of the right to vote when they are incarcerated. Once they are released from prison, their rights are automatically restored, even if they are on parole, under a 2021 law passed by the state’s Democratic legislature.

“If a Floridian’s voting rights are restored in the state of conviction, they are restored under Florida law.”Blair Bowie of the Campaign Legal Center wrote in a post, noting that people without Trump’s legal resources are often confused by Florida’s complex rules.
