Get Paid to Vote

Here's a neat tip: in Utah, you can take time off of work to vote and be paid for it. Per Utah Code Section 20A-3-103, you can notify your employer in advance to take two paid hours for voting at the beginning or end of your normal workday without financial penalty. You have to make arrangements ahead of time and you aren't eligible if there's at least 3 hours of voting time outside of your normal working hours. Now you really have no excuse for not voting!
