Already Have a Job but Still Want to Help? Talk with Your Employer Now!
If you already have a job where you are normally scheduled to work on both 11/2/2020 and 11/3/2020, many Colorado employers will support your interest in working the Presidential Election by allowing you to take Paid Time Off. Some employers consider Election Day a paid holiday or may encourage your support by paying you without you having to use your PTO.

Every company’s policies are different, so we encourage you to talk with your employer as soon as possible to see what your options are.
