Legally, Your Boss HAS to Let You Leave Work to Vote
You are legally entitled to vote on voting day. Your employer is committing an elections’ offence if they tell you you can’t leave during your shift or work day, to vote. You’re actually allowed up to 4 hours, without being docked pay.
How Can I Tell if I am Registered to Vote?
You can double check if you’re registered here: http://www.elections.gov.nl.ca/elections/Voters/index.html. Do this by Monday, November 23rd at 8:00 p.m; that’s the deadline to register.
