Employees Can Use Time Off to Vote During Early Voting for This General Election

Oct. 27, 2016 -- With the increasing popularity, convenience and importance of early voting, CNM is encouraging employees to consider using their allowance of up to two hours off to vote during the early voting period that is currently underway for the General Election.

Oct 27, 2016

A longtime CNM policy, which is mandated by the state, allows employees to take up to two hours off from work to vote on Election Day. However, with early voting being a more convenient option for many people these days, CNM is extending the “time off to vote” allowance for any day during this early voting period. CNM will use this as a test to see if it would be more prudent to continue offering employees the opportunity to use their “time off to vote” allowance during future early voting periods.

If you would like to take advantage of voting early, the day and time of your release must be approved by your supervisor. Employees can still choose to use their time off to vote on Election Day, which is Nov. 8.

CNM encourages everybody to exercise your right to vote!
