In Illinois, people previously involved in the criminal legal system are still able to vote. People with criminal records can still participate in elections as long as they are not currently serving time on a sentence and they meet all other qualifications. If you have been charged, arrested but not charged, in jail but not serving a sentence, or on probation, you are able to vote.
