The Secretary of the Commonwealth office has announced a ‘new feature’ to the restoration of rights process. Virginians who have lost their civil rights will now be able to check the status of their rights restoration on the SOC website.
The searchable database requires first name, last name, date of birth and social security number. Only people with access to that information will be able to look up the status. Individuals who have had their rights restored will show the date the rights restoration was granted, along with a link to register to vote. If the petition is still being worked on, the site will show a pending status. Petitioners who are ineligible or who require more information to have their file completed will be directed to contact SOC office.
