In Illinois, being a convicted felon is not a bar to voting. That said, convicted felons are barred from voting while they are incarcerated. This is the case in every state, except for Maine and Vermont. Those states do permit convicted felons to vote while incarcerated via absentee ballots.
Constitution of Illinois:
SUFFRAGE AND ELECTIONS
SECTION 2. VOTING DISQUALIFICATIONSThere is no bar to voting while a case is pending. There is no bar to voting for misdemeanor convictions in Illinois state courts.
A person convicted of a felony, or otherwise under
sentence in a correctional institution or jail, shall lose
the right to vote, which right shall be restored not later
than upon completion of his sentence.
