Leave Policy for Voting

With Election Day approaching, employees are reminded of the UW–Madison policy regarding taking time off work to vote. In the unlikely event that employees cannot vote outside of work hours, they may vote during their scheduled work hours as long as they provide their supervisor with a written request prior to Election Day. Employees can arrange a flexible schedule that will allow them to vote, use their earned paid leave, or take an unpaid leave of absence (if unable to adjust their schedule or use earned paid leave balances). Details are available in the Leaves of Absence for Voting and Serving as an Election Official policy at policy.wisc.edu/library/UW-5059.
