Revive My Vote: Project to Help Virginians with Prior Felony Convictions Regain Right to Vote

W&M Law Students and Williamsburg Bar Association Team Up for Project

ELS LogMore than 300,000 Virginians with prior felony convictions are eligible to have their voting rights restored but have not yet regained this valuable right. William & Mary Law School and the Williamsburg Bar Association have launched the Revive My Vote project ( to help Virginians with non-violent felony convictions regain their right to vote.

Though Virginia's governor streamlined the voting rights restoration process last spring, it can still be difficult to navigate. That's where volunteer William & Mary Law students and supervising attorneys from the Williamsburg area can help. Revive My Vote's voting rights restoration assistance is provided free of charge. If you'd like help navigating Virginia's process for rights restoration, please email [[w|revivemyvote]] or call (844)WE2-VOTE/(844)932-8683 (toll free).  Callers can leave their names and contact information on Revive My Vote's voice messaging system and a student volunteer will return the call. 

Student volunteers working under the supervision of local attorneys will be standing by on Monday, April 7, and Wednesday, April 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. to answer calls in person. For more information about the project, visit
