Does your employer have to give you time off to vote? There’s no Federal Law mandating it and the States are split on it. Twenty-one States have No laws on the books about employers having to give employees time off to vote, North Carolina is one of those 21 states. There are a handful of states that give you time off to vote, but with no pay. The rest of these states have some sort of provision for employers to give employees time to vote during the workday. That said, most of these state laws say the employer doesn’t have to provide time off if the polls are open 2-3 hours before or after an employee’s shift. So, basically saying, do it on your own time.
