UALR is neutral on all matters regarding political association or support. Although this is the University’s official position, you are encouraged to support and vote for the candidates of your choice in national, state and local elections.
In most communities, polls remain open long enough to allow you time to vote without interruption of working hours. In cases of extreme hardship, such as great distance to the polls, you may be permitted to report to work late or leave early in order to vote. This time is given to you with pay and without reduction to your sick leave or annual leave, or any other leave benefit. If it is necessary for you to use this privilege, please notify your immediate supervisor before election day.
