2006 New York Code - Time Allowed Employees To Vote



 
    § 3-110. Time allowed employees to vote. 1. If a registered voter does
  not  have  sufficient time outside of his working hours, within which to
  vote at any election, he may, without loss of pay for up to  two  hours,
  take  off  so  much  working time as will, when added to his voting time
  outside his working hours, enable him to vote.
    2. If an employee  has  four  consecutive  hours  either  between  the
  opening  of the polls and the beginning of his working shift, or between
  the end of his working shift and the closing of the polls, he  shall  be
  deemed to have sufficient time outside his working hours within which to
  vote. If he has less than four consecutive hours he may take off so much
  working  time  as will when added to his voting time outside his working
  hours enable him to vote, but not more than two hours of which shall  be
  without  loss  of  pay,  provided  that he shall be allowed time off for
  voting only at the beginning  or  end  of  his  working  shift,  as  the
  employer may designate, unless otherwise mutually agreed.
    3.  If  the employee requires working time off to vote he shall notify
  his employer not more than ten nor less than two working days before the
  day of the election that he requires time off to vote in accordance with
  the provisions of this section.
    4. Not less  than  ten  working  days  before  every  election,  every
  employer  shall  post conspicuously in the place of work where it can be
  seen as employees come or go to their place of work,  a  notice  setting
  forth  the provisions of this section.  Such notice shall be kept posted
  until the close of the polls on election day.
