Election Day Voting Rights
Aug. 4, 2020, is an election day in Missouri. As a Missouri-based employer, we adhere to Missouri law. The College will follow the provisions of the law allowing time off to vote as stated in RsMo. 115.639.1. As a reminder, the following voting laws apply:
- Employees who are qualified and eligible to vote shall be relieved from duties at the College for a period of time for voting, which period will not exceed three (3) successive hours including off duty time, between the opening and closing of the polls on the day of the election.
- Employees whose work schedule gives them three successive hours off on Election Day between the opening and the closing of the polls would not be eligible for any paid time off for the purpose of voting.
- In providing the period of successive hours between the opening and the closing of the polls, if any scheduled working time is involved, the employee shall be paid for that part of the scheduled working time for which it is necessary for the employee to be absent, provided that the employee has, prior to election day, contacted his/her supervisor and requested to be absent from work for the purpose of voting.
- The supervisor has the right to specify the time that employees shall be relieved from duties so as to provide the successive hours for voting and the supervisor may assign employees to different voting time off periods so as to maintain sufficient coverage at the College.
We encourage all employees to participate in this important civic process. Please feel free to contact Robin Phillips, Associate Vice Chancellor, Human Resources at 314-539-5220 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
