Time Off to Vote – It's the Law


State Capitol— Secretary of State Max Maxfield reminds employers that Wyoming law requires that employees be given one hour off to vote in next Tuesday’s General Election. However, the law does not apply to employees with three or more consecutive non-working hours during the time polls are open, and there are exceptions for some federal agencies.

“Under the statute, the hour off to vote shall not be a meal hour and may be selected at the convenience of the employer,” said State Election Director Peggy Nighswonger.
