Virginia Gov. Mark Warner has restored rights to 1,892 felons, more than the state`s three previous governors combined. In Virginia, a felon loses voting rights permanently unless the governor restores them. Most states automatically allow felons to vote after they have completed their sentence. Warner has approved 1,100 applications this year, 150 of which he granted in September. The last day Virginia residents could register to vote in the Nov. 2 presidential election was Oct. 4.
