Voting in Public Elections
Voting in Public Elections

Employees are expected to vote before or after working hours. If this is not possible because the polls are not open for at least two hours before or after the employee's scheduled work hours, the employee may request advance approval in writing from the immediate supervisor for the needed time off during working hours, not to exceed two hours. 

Non-exempt employees should document time off for voting on their time sheet. 

Exempt employees must submit an Application for Leave form indicating “Voting in Public Election Leave” and time off of up to two hours.
