570.3 Election Day Pay

P-570.3 The College allows employees up to three (3) hours to vote in a governmental election or referendum.
Pr-570.3.1 The College designates the following three (3) hour periods for the purpose of voting:

6- 9 a.m.
4-7 p.m.

The supervisor will determine which 3 hour block an employee can use, depending on the employee’s schedule, to minimize the amount of time absent from work.

Pr-570.3.2 Employees who request time off to vote and make that request to their supervisor one day prior to the election, will not be docked or required to use personal time or vacation time, providing they adhere to the designated 3 hour period.

(Example: If an employee is scheduled in at 8 a.m. and out at 4:30 p.m. the supervisor would designate the 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. block, of which ½ hour is during normal work time and would be paid.)

(Example: If an employee is scheduled in at 9 a.m. and out at 5:30 p.m. there would be no need to request time off since the supervisor would designate the 6-9 a.m. block which is outside normal work time.)
