Nevada employers must permit an employee up to three paid hours to vote if the following three conditions are satisfied:
• The employee is registered to vote;
• The employee applied for voting leave prior to the day of the election; and
• It is “impracticable” for the employee to vote before or after his or her hours of employment.
Nevada employers may specify the hours when a qualified voting employee may be absent from work. However, Nevada law requires that employers provide employees “sufficient time” away from work to vote. The statute defines “sufficient time” as follows:
• One hour if the distance between the place of employment and the employee’s polling place is two miles or shorter;
• Two hours if the distance between the place of employment and the employee’s polling place is more than two miles but not more than ten miles; and
• Three hours if the distance between the place of employment and the employee’s polling place is more than 10 miles.
Violation of Nevada’s mandatory voting leave law is a misdemeanor, punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.
