    Hello p:

    Sure. The state where you live doesn't matter, though.

    Hold on, go to the Govt website, read if a convicted felon can get a passport, I did, here's what I found and I quote "That is entirely up to the discretion of the Passport Agency"

    Someone just pointed out their opinion that felons are eligible for a passport. I don't know how one can answer definitely (that one can obtain a passport), seems to me from the Govt's own website, ("frequently asked questions") and the answer given, that it's up the discretion of the passport agency. Certainly you can apply but your question was "are felons eligible", so guess we need to ask did you mean eligible to apply or eligible to be granted a passport?
