This booklet summarizes the laws, regulations and policies governing the political activities of federal employees and employees of the District of Columbia government. Its intent is to provide a basic overview of permissible and prohibited political activities. Employees should not rely on the opinions of friends or  co-workers when they have questions with regard to a specific political activity. Ignorance of the law does not excuse an employee’s violation of the Hatch Act. Reliance on incorrect or unofficial information also  does not excuse a violation. Employees with additional questions may obtain an advisory opinion by telephoning the Office of the Special Counsel or by submitting their questions, in writing, to the address listed below.
