In November 2018 voters approved a constitutional amendment, known as Amendment 4, to automatically restore voting rights for some convicted felons “upon completion of all terms of sentence including parole or probation.” Governor Ron DeSantis requests an advisory opinion of this Court as to the question of whether “completion of all terms of sentence” under Article VI, section 4 of the Florida Constitution includes the satisfaction of all legal financial obligations—including fees, fines, and restitution—ordered by the sentencing court.
