Iowa Time off to Vote

If your work schedule doesn't give you three consecutive hours off work while the polls are open, you have the right to take up to three hours off from work to vote.

You must make a written request for time off to vote to your employer before election day. Your employer has the right to specify which hours you get to take off. You cannot be penalized and deductions cannot be made from your regular salary or wages on account of this absence
