Fact!

Myth?

An individual with a felony conviction can never vote.

Nearly every state has a restoration process to regain voting rights. Only a few states do not allow re-enfranchisement, and those restrictions only apply to a few specific offenses. Generally, it is not a matter of whether one can vote, but how and when one can vote.

Fact!

Myth?

Individuals who have been convicted of a crime are “banned” from public housing.

Public Housing Authorities have great discretion in determining their admissions and occupancy policies for individuals involved in the criminal justice system. While PHAs can choose to ban individuals from participating in public housing and Section 8 programs, it is not HUD policy to do so. In fact, in many circumstances, formerly incarcerated people should not be denied access.
