(1) The law on when the right to vote is restored following a felony conviction is established in RCW 29A.08.520. Upon receiving new data from the department of corrections or at least on a monthly basis, the secretary must compare the voter registration records to lists of persons who are either incarcerated or on community supervision with the Washington state department of corrections, and to lists of persons convicted in federal district courts with a sentence of at least fifteen months incarceration. The secretary must create a list of voters potentially under authority of DOC by matching the first name, last name, date of birth, and other identifying information.
(2) For each voter, the secretary must change the voter's registration status to "pending status" with a status reason that indicates the record is a potential felon. Voters with pending status must not be issued a ballot.
