UAMS ADMINISTRATIVE GUIDE
Although the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) remains neutral on all matters of political affiliation or support, it is the policy of the University to encourage all members of the community to support and vote for candidates of their choice in both national and local political elections. In most communities, the polls remain open for a sufficient amount of time to allow employees reasonable time to vote without interruption of their working day. In cases of extreme hardship, or great distance to the polls however, employees may be permitted to arrive late or to depart early from their assigned work stations. This time is to be provided with pay and without the use of annual leave, sick leave, or compensatory time.
