Election Day Information for Faculty and Staff

Election Day is Monday, Oct. 19. Voting hours are from 7:30 am - 7:30 pm (check your voter registration card for full details).

In accordance with the Elections Act, 1996, the university will accommodate employees voting on Election Day to ensure three (3) consecutive hours away from work to cast their ballot. Please ensure appropriate arrangements for work and coverage have been made with your supervisor prior to leaving. Most faculty and staff possess a work schedule that already provides for three consecutive hours of personal time during polling hours and thus, are not eligilble for additional time away from work.
