The chart includes a summary of the rights for your state, where you can find the exact citation in case your boss doesn t believe you, and whether that time off is paid or not.

Here are a few examples for some of the largest states:

California: You can take time off at the beginning or end of your shift to vote and up to two hours of that time is paid if you don t have sufficient time outside your work hours to vote.

New York: You must request your time off to vote two to ten days before Election Day.

Florida: No specific laws that employers must give time off to vote.

I recommend reading the citations for your state, which highlight your time off voting rights within the election code, to get all the details.

Looking up your rights now is useful since some states require you to let your employer know a few days ahead of time that you ll be out.
