The University encourages all registered employees to vote for the candidates of their choice during the elections. Voting polls are usually open before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. to allow voting before or after the normal work day. However, KU recognizes that some employees may have to travel some distance to polling places. The University allows up to a maximum of 2 hours of paid time in situations where travel time may affect your ability to vote. You should request time off in advance from your supervisor if travel time to the polls is required.
Please review the Voting Policy for more information.
