Use of State Computers and Computer System

The State’s computers and its computer system are not to be used for political activities.  It is inappropriate for employees, employee groups or exclusive representatives to use state computers, computer systems, email addresses or fax numbers to communicate messages that are politically partisan.  Encouraging employees to “get out and vote” is not partisan politics and is not prohibited. Encouraging employees to vote for a particular candidate, platform or party is partisan and is prohibited.
