Early voting in Georgia begins Monday, October 17, 2022, and Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Because employees work different schedules throughout the state, this advisory offers guidance to assist you with administering time off to vote.
The State of Georgia encourages employees to exercise their right to vote in all federal, state, and local elections and has developed guidelines to allow employees to request time off for voting. Employees who meet certain guidelines may be provided not only time off to vote but also paid voting leave.
