Given that he has most likey committed a felony in order to get impeached and convicted, it is likely most states would deny him the right to vote. If he is convicted or pleads guilty to a crime prior to impeachment, he would likely lose his voting rights in most states for a period of time.

Can a ex felon hunt in northcarolina?

An ex-convict and an ex-felon are not the same thing. An ex-felon is someone who was convicted of a felony, but the conviction was later overturned - thus, they are no longer a felon. An ex-convict is someone who was convicted, sentenced, and has completed their sentence - if they were convicted of a felony, then they remain a felon.Both may hunt in North Carolina. However, an ex-con convicted of a felony charge may not do so with a firearm.
