The February 5th election is less than two weeks away, and there are important issues on the California ballot. In accordance with UC Personnel Policy 46, a non-exempt employee shall be granted leave with pay, up to a maximum of two hours, for voting in a statewide primary or general election if the employee does not have time to vote outside of working hours. Any additional time off shall be without pay. Please notify your supervisor in advance if you need to take time off during work hours to vote.
Important issues on this ballot include selecting presidential candidates to appear on the November ballot and propositions related to transportation funding, State legislative term limits, Indian Gaming compacts and Community Colleges, some of which could have an impact on the University of California. I encourage you to read the voter information pamphlets about these issues before you vote.
