Federal Employee Hatch Act Information
Federal employees: Think you can’t participate in your local party because of the Hatch Act? Think again! While the Hatch Act does prohibit certain activities — like fundraising for candidates — there are many opportunities to pitch in. You can still knock on doors, phone-bank, attend events, post on social media and donate to candidates. Just make sure you do it on your personal time. Check with your agency’s ethics officer for any restrictions that may be unique to your situation. The Federal Office of Legal Counsel provides broad guidelines here: Federal Employee Hatch Act Information.
