I think that employers should give their employees at least 2 hours to go vote on election day. It is very important that everyone gets a chance to participate in the government. If someone does not get the chance, they don't get to vote for what they want and will lead them to being unhappy. In an article it says, “According to a United States Census Bureau survey of about 19 million registered voters who did not vote in the 2016 general election, 14.3 percent — about 2.7 million people — cited busy schedules as the main reason.” A lot of people don't have time even if the polls are open before or after they get off of work. They might have children to take care of at home. If people get time during work they could get it done while their children are at school.For many, that extra time off is the only thing that makes voting possible. According to Election Day, 35% of non-voters say that scheduling conflicts with work or school are what keeps them away from the polls. And the brunt of a lack of flexibility may be falling on hourly employees. In a survey conducted by O.C. Tanner, only 53% of hourly employees reported they were given time off to vote, compared with 69% of salaried employees. This is why employees should get time off to vote.
