609.1 STATEMENT Georgetown University encourages eligible employees to register and vote in national, state, and local elections.  In cases where unusual working hours or distant travel is involved, the University will permit an employee to arrive late or to depart early from work to exercise the right to vote.
609.2 PHILOSOPHY The University supports each individual's right to vote and will provide the necessary time away from work when an employee's work schedule does not permit time to vote during the hours the polls are open. 
609.3 PROCEDURES Advance Notice
If an employee is unable to vote before or after work hours due to an extended work schedule, the employee must inform the immediate supervisor and arrange for time off to vote. 

Leave Used
Time off from work for voting must be recorded as administrative leave with pay.

609.4 RESPONSIBILITY Each department is responsible for providing time away from work for an employee to vote if the employee's work schedule does not permit sufficient time to vote before or after work.
609.5 RESOURCE For more information concerning voting time, contact the appropriate Human Resources department.
