The Director of the Department of Corrections shall provide that any person convicted
of a felony is notified of the loss of his civil rights and of the processes to apply
for restoration of civil rights and of voting rights. The notice shall be given at the time the person has completed service of his sentence,
period of probation or parole, or suspension of sentence.
The Director shall assist the Secretary of the Commonwealth in the administration
of the process established by the Governor for the review of applications for restoration
of civil rights.
To promote the efficient processing of applications to the Governor, the Secretary
of the Commonwealth shall maintain a record of the applications for restoration of
rights received, the dates such applications are received, and the dates they are
either granted or denied by the Governor. The Secretary shall notify each applicant who has filed a complete application that
the complete application has been received and the date the complete application was
forwarded by the Secretary to the Governor. Such complete application shall be forwarded by the Secretary to the Governor within
ninety days after receipt of the application.
