PURPOSE:

To provide provisions for granting paid time off from work when necessary for full-time regular faculty and staff members to vote in national, state, and local elections.

GENERAL PHILOSOPHY:

Staff members of the University are encouraged to exercise their voting  privileges at all national, state, and local elections. Ordinarily, work schedules permit adequate time for voting either before or after normal working hours.

TIME OFF FROM WORK:

When it is not possible to vote at any other time, a regular full-time faculty or staff member will be granted time off from work for up to four consecutive hours for the purpose of voting on election days, without loss of pay. Time off for voting will be scheduled by the immediate supervisor.

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION DAY:

Presidential Election Day is a University holiday and the provisions of the holiday policy apply.
