Polls open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. If you work nontraditional hours that prevent you from casting your ballot in person before the deadline, state law requires your employer to grant time for voting. Employees are eligible for paid time off for the purpose of voting only if they do not have sufficient time outside of working hours to vote. The intent of the law is to provide an opportunity to workers who would not be able to vote because of their jobs.
