2005 California Elections Code Sections 14000-14003 CHAPTER 1. PRIVILEGES OF VOTERS

ELECTIONS CODE
SECTION 14000-14003

14000.  (a) If a voter does not have sufficient time outside of
working hours to vote at a statewide election, the voter may, without
loss of pay, take off enough working time that, when added to the
voting time available outside of working hours, will enable the voter
to vote.
   (b) No more than two hours of the time taken off for voting shall
be without loss of pay.  The time off for voting shall be only at the
beginning or end of the regular working shift, whichever allows the
most free time for voting and the least time off from the regular
working shift, unless otherwise mutually agreed.
   (c) If the employee on the third working day prior to the day of
election, knows or has reason to believe that time off will be
necessary to be able to vote on election day, the employee shall give
the employer at least two working days' notice that time off for
voting is desired, in accordance with this section.
14001.  Not less than 10 days before every statewide election, every
employer shall keep posted conspicuously at the place of work, if
practicable, or elsewhere where it can be seen as employees come or
go to their place of work, a notice setting forth the provisions of
Section 14000.
14002.  Sections 14000 and 14001 shall apply to all public agencies
and the employees thereof, as well as to employers and employees in
private industry.
14003.  Except in time of war or public danger, no voter is obliged
to perform militia duty on any election day.
