Compunetix employees once again have an extra incentive to stop at polling places on Tuesday, besides doing their civic duty.

The electronics maker and related companies based in Monroeville offer four hours of paid time off to employees who vote, then present proof.

About 500 workers at Compunetix Inc., plus Compunetics, Chorus Call and Sonexis also get time off on Election Day to go to the polls. The total includes about 50 in New Jersey.

Giorgio Coraluppi, president of the four companies, has made the offer during major elections over the past eight years. He's a Milan, Italy, native and naturalized American citizen who believes strongly in exercising the right to vote.
