How can the company know for sure if you bunk off work to go vote then go catch up pn grocery shopping instead. Are you required to get some sort of receit?

I guess the polls opening 1&1/2 hours earlier then Ontario is the gov'ts way of trying to lessen the effect of BC voting after the election has already been decided. A sensible compromise and exactly the type of thing that a gov't gets right but no-one notices.

I thought federal law said you were to have four hours to vote. If the polls are open 8 to 8, and you work 9-5 - you can get off at 4 to have your four hours. If you work 8-4 your work owes you nothing.
I could be wrong on the four hours though. Maybe I should've googled it first....brb...
