    Voting


    Policy Statement

    The University encourages all faculty and staff to vote. Voting polls are usually open before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. to allow voting before or after the normal work day. However, we recognize that faculty and staff may have to travel some distance to polling places.   


    Reason for Policy

    The University encourages all faculty and staff to vote and allows flexibility to address required travel to polling places. ​


    Who Is Governed by this Policy

    Faculty and Staff


    Policy

    In accordance with New York State Election Law § 3-110, if a registered voter does not have “sufficient time outside of his or her working hours,” within which to vote at any election, he or she may, without loss of pay for up to two hours, take off so much working time as will, when added to his or her voting time outside his or her working hours, enable him or her to vote.

    Specifically, if an employee has four consecutive hours either between the opening of the polls and the beginning of his or her working shift, or between the end of his or her working shift and the closing of the polls, he or she shall be deemed to have sufficient time outside his or her working hours within which to vote. (For example, an employee would have sufficient time to vote during non-working hours if his or her workday ends at 5 p.m. and polls are open until 9 p.m.)

    But if an employee has less than four consecutive hours he or she may take off so much working time as will when added to his or her voting time outside his or her working hours enable him or her to vote, but not more than two hours of which shall be without loss of pay, provided that the employee shall be allowed time off for voting only at the beginning or end of his or her working shift, as the University may designate, unless otherwise mutually agreed.

    Notice

    If the employee requires working time off to vote, he or she shall notify his or her supervisor not more than ten nor less than two working days before the day of the election that he or she requires time off to vote in accordance with this Policy.
