Voting Leave

Maryland voters will be heading to the polls on November 6, 2018.  The polls are scheduled to open at 7:00 am and will close at 8:00 pm. Under Maryland law, an employer may be required under certain circumstances to provide employees paid time off work to vote.   

The voting leave law, which is found in Maryland’s Election Law statute, requires an employer to provide up to 2 hours of paid leave to any employee, (1) who claims to be registered to vote, and (2) who does not have 2 hours of continuous off-duty time during the time the polls are open.   The law provides that the employer may request proof that the employee did in fact vote or attempted to vote. After voting, election judges onsite at the polls can provide any employee with a Certificate of Participation to bring to his or her employer.
