Voting Time Leave

Employees are entitled to paid time off during their regular work hours, under state statute as well as contracts and plans, for the purposes of voting in any statewide primary or general election or an election to fill a vacancy in the office of a representative in Congress.  General election includes elections at either the city or county level, as well as state and federal level.  Such leave must be granted to employees who are eligible to vote and is only available during the day of the election. Such leave must be pre-arranged and is for a reasonable period of time, considering voter turnout and commute time.
