The vast majority of U.S. employees say they're planning to vote in next month’s presidential election without missing a day of work, Careerbuilder.com reports.

Nearly 90 percent of the 6,194 workers recently polled said they'll be voting in the presidential election next week, the Chicago-based online recruiting firm said. Most said they planned to vote before or after work.

The survey also found that older workers were more likely to vote than their younger colleagues. Ninety-five percent of employees over 55 said they're planning to vote, compared to 77 percent of those 18 to 24.

More than 60 percent of respondents said they're keeping their political affiliations to themselves around the workplace. Less than 30 percent said they've openly debated election issues with co-workers, while some 20 percent said their employers prohibit them from displaying materials from either candidate or party.
