As a reminder, Minnesota Law allows workers to take time off to vote without losing pay.

From the Secretary of State Website:

You have a right to take time off work to vote without losing your pay, personal leave, or vacation time:

  • Your employer must pay you for the time you need to vote, if it falls within your scheduled work time. Your employer cannot require you to use personal leave or vacation time (see Minnesota Statutes 204C.04 and 204C.08 subd. 1d).
  • Take only as much time as you need to vote and go to work.
  • Your employer cannot directly or indirectly refuse, limit, or interfere with this right, including what time you choose to vote.
  • Your employer can ask that you tell them when you will be gone, and ask that employees coordinate their absences to minimize workplace disruptions.
