In most communities, polls remain open long enough to allow you time to vote before or after working hours. In cases of extreme hardship, such as having to travel a great distance to your polling place, you may be permitted to report to work late or to leave early in order to vote. The time permitted for this purpose is given to you with pay and without reduction of your sick leave, annual leave, or any other benefit. If it is necessary for you to use this privilege, please notify your immediate supervisor before election day.
