HiThis is a situation where you will need to get a Pardon from the Governor of PA to make you eligible to then Petition the Court to have your records expunged.
Once there is an expunction of the record, then you would be eligible to purchase a firearm, because your crime will not appear on your record.As to your voting rights, you have those rights, as under PA law an offender's rights to vote are restored immediately upon release from prison. So, even though you now live in VA, you should not be disenfranchised from your vote. All you need to do is go to the Board of Elections in your county and register.
