Employee Entitlement to Vote During work hours – If the employee is engaged or employed on the day of the election for a period of 2 hours during the times the polls are open.  Eligible electors who are employed and paid by the hour shall receive their regular hourly wage during their absence.  The employer may specify the hours during which the employee may be absent but the hours shall be at the beginning or end of the workship, if the employee requests so.

EXCEPTIONS – If there are 3 or more hours between the time of opening and the time of closing of the pols during which the elector is not required to be on the job, the employer does not need to allow or pay for time off to vote.
