1-Hour Required For Employees To Vote

August 16, 2012 State of Wyoming No Comments
Maxfield

Are you planning to take the time to vote in the primaries Tuesday?  You know you have that time coming to you.  Secretary of State Max Maxfield reminds that Wyoming law requires that employees be given one hour off to vote on Election Day.  Maxfield says the hour off may not be a meal hour and may be selected at the convenience of the employer.  At the same time, employees must use the hour to vote as intended by the law.  Maxfield points out that the law does not apply to employees with three or more consecutive non-working hours during the time polls are open, and there are exceptions for some federal agencies. Polls open 7:00 am Tuesday and remain open until all those in line at 7:00 pm have cast their ballot.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
