Yes, federal employees can participate in the political process and not violate the Hatch Act. NTEU encourages all federal employees to understand and exercise their political rights.

The new edition of NTEU’s Status Call provides guidance on all that federal employees can do and what they should watch out for. Here are a few of the activities you can participate in:

  • Register to vote and vote
  • Express opinions about all candidates and issues, privately and publicly
  • Display a political affiliation on personal social media profiles
  • Display a political party, campaign logo, or candidate picture as a profile or cover picture on a personal Facebook or Twitter account

There is more on your rights. Read Status Call.
