Default Restoration of civil rights

Does anybody know to go about getting your civil rights restored after you have completed SR?
I was sentenced in Ky went to Camp for 13 months and was transferred to IN for my SR and final release?

Check with the state where you will be residing. Every jurisdiction can have their own laws on how to restore voting, firearm ownership, etc.. Some are automatically restored, but others require more steps for it to happen. For federal felony convictions, only a presidential pardon can erase many of the restrictions.

What do you want to accomplish? Here is the federal pardon application
https://www.justice.gov/pardon/application-forms

Voting is a State issue, so you need to check your state's voting laws. Example, Washington automatically reinstates the right to vote for everyone who completes (or never has) state parole or probation supervision. Federal inmates can vote as soon as they are released by the bop, even if they are still on federal supervised release.

If you are pardoned by the President, then you would no longer be a convicted felon, so any State restrictions because of your federal white collar conviction would disappear.
