.

Tuesday, November 4th is election day.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett is reminding businesses that it is illegal to reward employees for voting.

Who knew?

Companies offering free food, drinks or gift cards to encourage or reward people for voting could be guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor.

Arizona state law does require employers to allow workers a three hour time frame for voting on election day.

Polls are open tomorrow from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
