Can I vote in Georgia if I have been arrested?
Yes. Anyone who is not currently serving a sentence for a felony conviction is eligible to vote in Georgia.
Can I vote in Georgia if I was sentenced under the First Offender Act?
Maybe. If you were treated as a first offender and your sentence has not been revoked you are eligible to vote in Georgia. A felony first offender case, even though the defendant pleads guilty, is not considered a conviction unless the judge revokes the first offender status. A first offender case can be revoked for a violation of the terms of the sentence. If your felony first offender case was revoked and you are still serving the sentence, you are not eligible to vote until the sentence is complete.
Do I have to have a pardon or other criminal history documentation to be able to register to vote?
No. You do not need to provide any documentation about your criminal history in order to register. All you have to do is state that you are not currently serving a sentence for a felony conviction.
