Time Off to Vote for Employees A State by State Survey. My Australian co-workers could not BELIEVE that the US holds elections on a Tuesday. "What if your boss doesn't let you out to vote?!" I really like having them on a Saturday here.

UK General elections (the ones where you vote for new government) are on a Thursday and held in schools so kids get the day off :) Opening times are normally 7am until 10pm, i think.

Can't remember about local council elections but maybe they are the same.

Yep, council elections and all are on Thursdays in UK. And open late and early.
