    On the day of a federal election in Canada, an employee must be granted at least 4 consecutive hours off work with pay while the polls are open. Since the polls close at 20:00, that means being let off work at 16:00 for most day workers.

    Last time I worked the Fed election, it was 3 hours. Most people vote before or after work, or on their lunch, and the 3 hours off is given at the EMPLOYERS discretion, not the employees.

    In my state if you don’t have 3 consecutive hours outside of your work shift, your employer is required to pay you upto 2 hours and let you go vote. You can request beginning or end, otherwise the employer gets to decide when you go. You must request it a minium of three days in advance, you cannot ask for it the day of. I do not qualify since I am off at 4pm and polls close at 8pm thus I have 4 hours, but people who work later than me, could but most people aren’t too educated on their own laws. Each state is a little bit different.

    Here in Colorado, we have early voting, and recently, mail-in ballots as well as regular voting on Election Day.

    Just remember folks! After the election if you don’t like the winners and you didn’t vote against them then you effectively voted for them.

    Unlike America, our elections can be totally random. They’ve taken place in every month of the year. They can be called at a moments notice, and happen 6 weeks later.

    I bet some of them still voted anyways and probably voted for the person who wants to give them legal status.
