An employee must be given 1 paid hour off from work, other than mealtime, to vote in primary and general elections, or to vote in special elections to fill a U.S. congressional vacancy. The time taken may be at the convenience of the employer, as long as it is between the opening and closing of the polls. This law does not apply to employees with 3 or more consecutive nonworking hours during the time the polls are open (WY Rev. Stat. Sec. 22-2-111).
