New York State Voting Leave Rights

Generally, New York State employees are eligible for up to two hours of paid time off to vote if they do not have "sufficient time to vote." An employee is deemed to have "sufficient time to vote" if an employee has four consecutive hours to vote either from the opening of the polls to the beginning of their work shift, or four consecutive hours between the end of a working shift and the closing of the polls.

The Election Law provides for up to two hours of paid time off to enable an employee time to vote when added to their voting time outside their working hours.

An employee must notify an employer at least two working days prior to their intention to take paid time off to vote, but not more than ten working days.

If you are an employee who qualifies for this leave and you are hourly, you will code this time as excused on your time sheet and you will put a note in the comments section that says "voting time". If you are a salaried employee, you will just note that you took the leave, in the comments section of your Leave Report.

To find your polling place and the hours that it will be open, please visit, https://www.vote.org/poll...
