Calif. law allows time off to vote on Election Day

Employers suppose to post notice 10 days prior

To ensure all voters can get to the polls on Nov. 6, California law provides employees up to two hours off to vote if they do not have enough time during non-work hours. 

Polling places will be open between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.

The law requires workers to give their employers about two working days notice before the election if they will need to take time off to vote.

Every California employer is also required to post, in a visible location, a notice informing employees of their rights at least 10 days before an election
