82. Any employer who, directly or indirectly, refuses or who by intimidation, undue influence or in any other way interferes with the granting to any elector in his employ of the period for voting prescribed by section 81, shall on summary conviction be liable to a fine of thirtytwo thousand five hundred dollars or to imprisonment for six months.
