How much time do I have for voting on Election Day?

November 3rd, 2011 | News

Every voter is entitled to three consecutive hours during which the polls are open in order to vote. Employers whose employees have three consecutive hours of their own time during polling hours need not allow additional time for voting. If, however, an employee is scheduled such that he or she does not have three consecutive hours off from work during polling hours, the employer must grant the employee time off. However, this time off must be requested by the employee and must be at a time convenient to the employer. Once requested by the employee, the employer must grant this time off with no penalty to the employee.
