Super Tuesday is March 3, 2020 — the day when the greatest number of U.S. states hold primary elections and caucuses. California used to hold its primary election in June, but now California voters have a chance to weigh in early in the primary process to help propel a candidate forward.
On March 3, 2020, polls are open from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Here's what employers need to know:
How the Voter's Choice Act May Affect Certain Counties
Employees registered to vote in certain California counties, may find it very tough to argue that they don't have enough time outside of working hours to vote.
Fifteen California counties participate in the Voter's Choice Act which allows registered voters to go to a voting center and vote in person starting 10 days before the election, including the weekend before the election. There are also ballot drop-off locations.
The 15 counties participating in the Voter's Choice Act are: Madera, Napa, Nevada, Sacramento, San Mateo, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Fresno, Los Angeles, Mariposa, Orange, Santa Clara, and Tuolumne.
Remember: You can never reward or punish employees for political activities or beliefs, coerce them to support a particular political candidate or ballot measure, or threaten to do so.
