Am I allowed time off work to vote?

Under the Local Authorities Elections Act, you are entitled to 3 consecutive hours to vote. Polls are open from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Your regular work schedule may already allow for 3 consecutive hours during the time that the polls are open (9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.). If your workday starts at noon or ends by 5:00 p.m., you have the 3 hours required by legislation and are not entitled to additional time off. If your work schedule does not allow you this time you will need to speak with your employer to schedule 3 hours to vote.
