Voting Leave

Please note the next election is on Tuesday, November 3.  

By NYS law, employees are eligible for paid time off to vote only if they don’t have sufficient time to vote before or after their shift.

  • An employee has sufficient time to vote when the polls are open 4 (or more) hours before or after work. 
  • Employees may take a reasonable amount of time at the beginning or end of their shift to allow them to vote, but not more than two hours without loss of pay.
  • An employee who needs time off to vote should notify their supervisor no more than 10 or no less than two working days before election day that the time off is required.

To comply with our campus directive, until further notice there will be NO IN-PERSON office hours

Please contact us by email with any questions or concerns; we will work to address your issues as quickly as possible.
You can email, or any of us individually.
Take care of yourselves!
