Election day is Nov. 6

October 26, 2012
Employers, remember: Under the Illinois Election Code, employees who are eligible voters are entitled to take up to two unpaid hours off work to vote. If an employee’s working hours begin less than two hours after the polls open and end less than two hours before the polls close, the employer must give the employee two hours off during working hours to vote.
Employers may require the employee to give advance notice of the leave and may specify the time of day during which the employee may take the leave. Proof of voting can be requested.
