Kansas Political Activity: What you need to know

Any person entitled to vote in an election conducted by a county election officer in Kansas is entitled to up to 2 hours off from work to vote. Time off, when added to the employee's nonworking time, must allow the employee 2 consecutive hours off when the polls are open. As a result of such absence, the employee may not be subject to any penalty or deduction from his or her usual salary or wages.
