University of Colorado Boulder employees are encouraged to vote on election day, Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012. Per Colorado Revised Statute §1-7-102 and State Personnel Board Rule 5-20(A), employees who do not have three hours of unscheduled work time during poll hours must be granted up to two hours of paid administrative leave. These three hours do not have to be consecutive (e.g., employees who work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. are not eligible for this leave because they may vote between 7-8 a.m. or 5-7 p.m.). Employees who do not have three hours of unscheduled work time are expected to give prior notice to their supervisors and specify the hours they will take off to vote.
