Colorado requires employers, under certain circumstances, to allow employees sufficient leave time to vote.

All employers in Colorado must allow employees time off to vote if they do not have sufficient time before or after work. This summary is restricted to coverage of private employers. Employers must allow employees to take two hours of leave on the day of any election. If employees have three hours outside of their work shifts while the polls are open, employers do not have to allow additional time off.
