Students must inform instructors at least two weeks prior to an election day about their commitment to work as an election official. Students will not receive a grade deduction for not attending class, and instructors will attempt to keep election days free of major assignments.
Instructors will announce early in the semester that students must notify them two weeks prior to an election about their anticipated absence to work at the polls and should include this information on their course syllabi. Make up work may be scheduled before or after the regularly scheduled requirements.
Instructors are also asked to provide flexibility to students reporting they may be tardy or absent the day of an election due to waiting to vote at the polls.
