OPM Announces Expanded Paid Time Off for Federal Employees to Vote
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) released updated guidance allowing federal employees to take paid time off to vote or serve as poll workers.
In addition to voting, employees may use up to four hours of administrative leave per year to serve as non-partisan poll workers or observers.
The updated guidance follows President Biden’s Promoting Access to Voting executive order signed last year that directed OPM to explore strategies to expand the federal government’s policy of granting employees time off to vote.
