Community corrections and rehabilitation
The Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation works to enhance community safety, promote community restoration, and reduce the risk of re‐offense. Department staff serve Hennepin County at more than 20 service locations ranging from correctional facilities to probation reporting offices and occupational training centers, delivering sustainable correctional services to more than 26,000 adult and juvenile clients. It is the largest community corrections organization in Minnesota.
Voting Rights Restored
As of June 1, 2023, you can vote even if you are on parole or probation. Your right to vote has been restored. Felony status doesn't affect your right to vote as long as you are not serving your sentence in a correctional facility. If you have a felony conviction, you can vote while on work release, home monitoring (ankle bracelet), or probation/parole. More information is available from the county's Elections department and the Minnesota Secretary of State.
