Do I need to submit an application to be considered for a restoration of citizenship rights?
If you have completely discharged your sentence by July 4, 2005, including any accompanying term of probation, parole, or supervised release, you will be covered by the blanket restoration of citizenship rights, and there is no need for you to file an application with the Governor’s office. For offenders that will completely discharge their sentences after July 4, 2005, including any accompanying term of probation, parole, the Department of Corrections will forward their names on a monthly basis to the Governor who will give consideration without undue delay. Notwithstanding the executive order, offenders have a statutory right to make an application for a restoration of citizenship rights at any time following a conviction. For more information, please call the Auditor's Office at 563-245-1106.
