Time off to vote legislation amended

From Human Resources:

ATTENTION ALL STATE EMPLOYEES – Time off to vote legislation has been amended.  Time allowed employees to vote on election day now states:

•If you do not have 4 consecutive hours to vote, either from the opening of the polls to the beginning of your working shift, or between the end of your working shift and the closing of the polls, you may take off up to 2 hours, without loss of pay, to allow you time to vote if you are a registered voter.

•You may take time off at the beginning or end of your working shift, as your employer may designate, unless otherwise mutually agreed.

•You must notify your employer not less than 2 days, but not more than 10 days, before the day of the election that you will take time off to vote.
