North Dakota Political Activity: What you need to know

North Dakota law does not require employers to grant employees time off to vote. However, it is the policy of the state to encourage voting in all statewide special, primary, or general elections. Employers are encouraged to allow employees to absent themselves from work to vote if the regular work schedule conflicts with available polling hours (ND Cent. Code Sec. 16.1-01-02.1).
