243 – Election Day and Voting
All HCSO employees will be afforded the opportunity to exercise their rights.
Harris County Sheriff’s Office employees are encouraged to vote in local, state, and national elections. Employees who are unable to vote during non-work hours may be given time off to vote under certain circumstances. An employee will give as much notice to his or her supervisor as possible and must present a valid voter’s registration card when requesting permission to leave the work premises to vote.
The time given for voting will be no more than one hour and will be given only at the beginning or end of the regular work schedule.
