An employee who is eligible to vote in a public election in the state of Iowa may request time off from work with regular pay for a period not to exceed three hours for the purpose of voting. Leave shall be granted only to the extent that the employee's work hours do not allow a period of three consecutive hours outside the employee's scheduled work hours during which the voting polls are open.
A request for voting leave must be made to the appointing authority on or before the employee's last scheduled shift prior to election day. The time to be taken off shall be designated by the appointing authority.
