Time off for voting

By law, an elector may get time off without loss of pay if he or she does not have sufficient time outside of regular working hours to vote. With prior notice to an employer, employees may take up to two hours off of work for the purpose of voting. The employer may specify the hours the employee will take off, but the period must fall at the beginning or end of the work period if the employee so requests. There is no leave available if there are three or more hours between the time of opening and the time of closing of the polls during which the voter is not required to be on the job.
