I. Employees Who Are Eligible to Vote Have a Constitutional and Statutory Right to At Least Four Hours Off to Vote if They Ask Off At Least a Day in Advance
Section 148 creates a constitutional mandate for the state legislature to provide employees with at least four hours off to vote. In relevant part, it reads: “The General Assembly shall provide by law that all employers shall allow employees, under reasonable regulations, at least four hours on election days, in which to cast their votes.”
The state legislature has responded to this mandate with KRS 118.035. KRS 118.035(2) requires an employer to provide an employee who is eligible to vote with at least four (4) hours off for either of two (2) purposes: (1) going to the polls on Election Day; or (2) requesting or executing an absentee ballot during his or her county clerk's normal business hours.
This right is subject to two (2) limitations: (1) the employee must ask off a day or more in advance; and (2) his or her employer may specify which hours the employee takes off.
KRS 118.035(3) provides that an employee may not be disciplined for exercising his rights under Section 148 and KRS 118.035(2), unless he or she failed to vote during this time under circumstances not preventing him or her from voting.
