Paid time off rules: Time off to vote in Alaska is time off without loss of pay.

Amount of time off allowed: An employee may take off as much working time as required to vote.

When time off not allowed: If an employee has two consecutive hours in which to vote, between either the opening of the polls and the beginning of the employee's regular working shift or the end of the working shift and the closing of the polls, the employee is deemed to have sufficient time outside of working hours within which to vote.
