Today is the last day to vote in the 2020 elections! California allows for same-day registration, so if you are eligible to vote but not registered to vote, there is still time to vote in this year’s election. The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth has been helping immigrants seek United States citizenship for decades, and one of the chief benefits of citizenship is the ability to vote. Exercise your rights today!
Employment law dictates that all employees are eligible for time off for the express purpose of voting. You can be given as much time off necessary to vote, but only a maximum of two hours is paid. This time off can be restricted to the beginning or end of your shift and may require advance notice. More information is available on the California Secretary of State website.
The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth encourages everyone who can vote and has not voted already to make a plan to visit the polls safely today.
