Election officials remind those with criminal records to check voter registration status

State elections officials are urging those with past criminal convictions to check the status of their voter registration.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced the development of a new online tool called " Restore Your Vote " which allows Californians who have been convicted of a felony to check whether or not they are eligible to vote post-release.

Officials say Californians who are still subject to post-release supervision may be eligible to register.
