Do I get time off work or school to vote?

Answer

If you’re working on Election Day, your employer must allow you to have 3 consecutive hours off while polls are open. Most institutions operate on the same guidelines.

  • So if you normally work from 9:00am to 5:00pm, you will NOT get any extra off, because you still have 3 consecutive hours after work while the polls are open (5:00pm-8:00pm)
