    Tuesday, November 7th is election day in the U.S.

    Do you need time off from your job to vote?

    32 states have laws that require an employer to allot time off to employees so they can vote in local, state, and federal elections.

    Of those 32 states, many require that the time off be given to the employee without loss of pay.

    I think we're guaranteed two hours by my employer. But they have heavily encouraged voting early. They set up three "absentee" voting stations for the past several weeks and officially encouraged people to vote that way even if (like me, who did it) won't actually be absent.
