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.).
Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4. Many electronic devices will update automatically with the time change, but you may have to set your microwave, wall clocks and other devices by hand. Household traditions paired with the clock shift include rotating your mattress, checking your fire alarm battery, and trying - and failing - to sleep an extra hour. Learn more about the rules associated with the clock change at the NIST website.
Over Fall Break, the faculty-staff and student editions of CU-Boulder Today will publish solely on Tuesday, Nov. 20. Please submit Community Notes and other information for publication by the close of business on Friday, Nov. 16. Thank you for sharing your campus updates via CU-Boulder Today.
