  • Mood:

vote!

Did you know that in Minnesota your employer can't dock your wages for time spent voting? Minnesota statute 204C.04. It only provides for voting in the morning rather than leaving work early, but hopefully this information will make it easier for some of you to go vote!

Minnesota Statutes 2004, Table of Chapters
Table of contents for Chapter 204C
204C.04 Employees; time off to vote.

Subdivision 1. Right to be absent. Every employee who is eligible to vote in an election has the right to be absent from work for the purpose of voting during the morning of the day of that election, without penalty or deduction from salary or wages because of the absence. An employer or other person may not directly or indirectly refuse, abridge, or interfere with this right or any other election right of an employee.

Subd. 2. Elections covered. For purposes of this section, "election" means a regularly scheduled state primary or general election, an election to fill a vacancy in the office of United States senator or United States representative, or an election to fill a vacancy in the office of state senator or state representative.

Subd. 3. Penalty. A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor, and the county attorney shall prosecute the violation.

HIST: 1981 c 29 art 5 s 4; 1988 c 578 art 1 s 3; 1991 c 245 s 1; 1995 c 20 s 1; 2000 c 260 s 27
