Do I Get Time Off To Vote? Know Your Rights

Reader Daniel says his employer is violating state law by not offering paid time off for employees to vote. He forwarded a handy list that you can use to check to see if you’re entitled to time off to vote.

Daniel says:

My office recently sent out an email stating “Any employee who wishes to take time off work to vote must request that time by the close of business today. This time will be unpaid.”

Unfortunately for them, that’s a violation of state law.

Even if your state doesn’t have laws about getting time off for voting, don’t let your employer stop you. Vote!
