Elections can be held any day of week under the Electoral Law (LOREG). They are usually held on Sundays, but as the Andalusian election will show, they will be on July 19. Because it's a day when most people don't work, this is often the case. It is thought that it will make it easier for citizens to vote or to be appointed to a polling station.
Voting takes only a few moments. Being president or a member of a polling station requires more time and can be compared to a full day of work. This means that a day that would ordinarily be considered a rest day can become a workday. Many citizens are unsure if they have the right of rest on the next day, even though 65 euros is paid per diem for each day of services rendered.
A member of a polling place is an inexcusable and public duty. There are very few reasons why you should not be a member of a polling station once you have been elected president, alternate, or member. However, this does not mean that you cannot enjoy the rest of your day. Those who vote at a polling station will still be able to get benefits from their work the day after the election. As long as it is a work day, of course.
There will be 10,187 polling stations for the Andalusian election. This means that more than 30,000 Andalusians will need to stay in these stations throughout the day. Each of them will have a reduced work day on the day following the elections. It is specifically stated that the reduction will be limited to five hours so that they can make up some of the time lost due to being part of a polling station.
However, the reduction in working hours on the day following the election for the presidents or members of the electoral tables does NOT mean a decrease in salary. It will allow you to work for 5 hours, and it will also be a paid permit. This will not impact the monthly salary.
