Time with pay can be granted for up to two (2) hours with payment occurring through vacation or the Short-Term Bank for the purpose of voting in local, municipal, state, or national elections. This time off will be scheduled by a supervisor at either the beginning or the end of the work period or at other times more advantageous to the maintenance of a department’s or unit’s work schedule.
