The California Presidential Primary Election will be held on June 7, 2016. Employees may take time off from work and have certain rights with regards to taking this time off. In addition, employers have posting obligations.
If an employee does not have sufficient time outside of working hours to vote, the employee may take up to two hours of working time to vote. The time off must be taken at the beginning or the end of the regular working schedule, whichever gives the employee the most free time for voting and the least time away from work. The employee must notify the employer at least two working days in advance to schedule voting time.
Employers must display a poster describing voting leave requirements at least 10 days before every statewide election. For information on the voting leave poster and all required posters and notice, please contact your HR Representative.
