Part VI: Leave Benefits

610 - Voting Leave


If staff members are unable to vote in an election because their work schedule encompasses the period polls are open, time-off to vote will be granted in accordance with applicable state law.

Staff members should request time-off to vote from their supervisor at least two working days prior to the election day. Advance notice is required so that the necessary time-off can be scheduled at the beginning or end of the work shift, whichever provides the least disruption to the normal work schedule.

Staff members must submit a voter's receipt on the first working day following the election to qualify for paid time-off.
