People should never feel like they can't cast a ballot because they don't have time. Employers should not give workers one more excuse not to vote by withholding compensation for the time it takes to go to the polls.
Employees shouldn’t be paid for voting during work hours — they can go after work, or find early voting options in their state. Plus, there’s no guarantee that workers will even use paid hours to vote.
