As you know, tomorrow is Election Day. I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to exercise your right to vote as citizens of California. In accordance with UC Personnel Policy 46, a non-exempt employee shall be granted leave with pay, up to a maximum of two hours, to vote in a statewide primary or general election if the employee does not have time to vote outside 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.
In addition to election to the office of President and Vice President of the United States, a number of important state and local issues are on the November ballot. I encourage you to read the voter information pamphlets so that you may make an informed decision.
