Not even vaguely true. The law regarding felons and voting varies from state to state. Here in Missouri, any convicted felon who has served his term and is no longer on probation or parole is automatically restored to the voter rolls. The one exception, here in Missouri, is a very good one, and it has nothing to do with felonies: if you are convicted of a voting-related crime, you permanently lose your right to vote in Missouri, whether the crime was a felony or a misdemeanor. (I think that's rather generous, myself. I'd prefer to see people convicted of voting-related crimes given 72 hours to exit the country and stay out, and marked to be shot on sight if seen within the country's borders after that.) ObDisclaimer: IANAL.
