Election Day will be a paid holiday for thousands of workers across the U.S. this year.

Some companies are closing their doors altogether on Tuesday, allowing employees to get out and vote.

November 8 will be a paid holiday for workers at General Motors (GM), Ford Motor Company, (F) Square (SQ), Hearst Publishing, Patagonia, mattress company Casper and digital media company Thrillist.

While there is no federal law requiring workers get time off to vote, state laws vary on what's required. For instance, some offer paid leave for a set amount of time to vote. Others offer unpaid leave and some require workers give adequate notice before taking leave to vote.

Local laws can also regulate time off on Election Day.

A campaign started earlier this year called "Take Off Election Day" has encouraged companies to give workers time off to cast their ballots.
