Time Off to Vote
Big Sandy ADD encourages you to fulfill your civic responsibilities by voting in elections. Generally, we expect that you will be able to vote either before or after work hours since the polls open at 6:00 a.m. and do not close until 6:00 p.m. An employee who submits a formal request in advance, may receive up to 2 hours off to vote. Such time off must be approved by the executive director and will be tailored to meet the needs of the requesting employee.
In order to accommodate your absence, if you know you cannot vote during non-working hours, you should inform your team leader at least two working days prior to an election day. Your time off from work will be recorded on the time record to be turned into accounting after approval by your team leader.
