Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.

The bot***** *****ne up front is that your uncle can register and vote.

Under Pennsylvania law, people with a criminal record who have been released from prison, or who will be freed by the time of the election, are eligible to vote. This is true even if they are on parole or probation. Only those people who are incarcerated on a felony conviction are not allowed to vote. Voting rights are automatically restored upon release from prison.
