Voting Leave Repealed


On June 28, 2019, Governor Ige signed HB 1248 into law. Effective with the 2020 primary election, the law requires all elections statewide to be conducted by mail. Because of this requirement, an employee's absence during the day will not be necessary in order to visit a polling location. Thus, the new law also repeals the voting leave law, which provided employees with up to two hours of leave for the purpose of voting.
