In Letter, ACLU of Utah Urges Employers to Comply with "Time-Off to Vote" Policy in Provo City

24 September 2004 Published in Legal Advocacy

The ACLU of Utah sends letter to Provo City regarding its “Time-Off to Vote” policy. We received a call from a Provo city employee concerned that he would be denied his statutory right to time off from work to cast his vote on Election Day. Our letter to a Provo City attorney received a tepid response, and we passed the matter over to the Assistant Attorney General who works on election issues. As a result, Provo is now re-examining its policy.
