Any registered voter is entitled to up to two hours' time off from work to vote, unless the employee has two consecutive hours of nonworking time while the polls are open. Time off, when added to the employee's nonworking time, must allow the employee two consecutive hours off when the polls are open.
If the employee applies for this time off prior to or on election day, the employee cannot be subject to any penalty, and the absence will be paid. The employer may specify the particular time when the employee may be absent (NE Rev. Stat. Sec. 32-922).
