NOVEMBER 8: ELECTION DAY INFORMATION
Any Presidential Election Day is a holiday and all state employees are entitled to the holiday.
Employees who are scheduled to work on the holiday in lieu of being off for the day, who also
meet voting leave eligibility requirements, should be allowed leave to vote. If an employee takes
leave to vote, leave should be requested in advance and a copy of the approved request will
document the purpose of the leave, but the timesheet should not reflect VOTE for that time.
The timesheet record should reflect the full holiday entitlement and cannot also have 4 hours of
voting leave on the timesheet, as that would duplicate the accounting of the scheduled hours. No
leave for absentee voting should be approved. Employees are given the day off for Presidential Election Day.
If an employee chooses to work as an Election Officer on Presidential Election Day or will be out of town
on that day, they may cast an absentee ballot but should not be given voting leave time to do so.
As always please contact the Division of Human Resources with any questions regarding
the holiday and/or timesheet recording.
