Restoration of Your Civil Rights

The 2003 Nevada Legislature voted to automatically restore civil rights to first-time, non violent offenders upon expiration of their sentence or upon their honorable discharge from parole or probation. There is no cost to apply. NDOC (for prison discharges) or the Division of Parole & Probation (for those who discharge from parole or probation) will provide documentation of the restoration of rights, which can then be taken to the County Voter Registrar or provided to others as proof.

Automatic restoration of civil rights upon discharge does not apply to Category A felons, Category B felons whose crime caused substantial bodily harm, or felons with 2 or more convictions. Those persons may, however, apply to the courts requesting the restoration of their civil rights. There is no cost to apply.

The civil rights which are restored are:

- The right to register and vote
- Right to serve as a juror in a civil cases
- After 4 years after discharge, right to run for and hold non-law enforcement and non-judicial elective office
- After 6 years after discharge, serve in a criminal jury

Former inmates who were already expired as of July 1, 2003 were automatically restored to their civil rights upon the passage of this law on July 1, 2003. Records older than one year will have to be obtained from State Archives so allow two weeks for response to this request.
