Are employers required to offer time off to vote on Election Day in Wisconsin?

Yes. Wis. Stat. § 6.76 requires all employers in Wisconsin to give employees up to three hours to vote on Election Day. According to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, employees must tell their employer before Election Day that they will be absent to vote. The employer can decide what time of day the employee can be excused to vote.
