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.
The employer may specify the particular time when the employee may be absent but the time may not include the regular lunch period. A violation of the state voting leave law is a Class A misdemeanor (KS Stat. Sec. 25-418).
