Understanding Your Voting Rights
Posted on Nov. 5, 2012

Election Day is tomorrow, and with all the news about long lines at the polls, electioneering and the like, it is important to the attorneys at Jones Waldo that members of our community know and understand their rights as it relates to participating in one of our most important civic responsibilities: voting.  

By Utah state law, employers must allow their employees at least two hours of paid time to vote on Election Day if the employee would not otherwise have at least a three-hour block of time during open polling hours to vote. The employee needs to request the time at least the day before, and the employer can designate that specific two-hour block.

To find more information on your polling place, poll hours, required forms of identification, candidates and issues, visit: vote.utah.gov.
