Political Activities of State Employees

An employee may be a candidate for public office, but may not campaign during work time, in state uniform or on state premises.  Any state employee who has filed for an elected public office must request the opinion of Human Resources to determine if the holding of that office conflicts with his/her regular state employment.  Human Resources will consult with other appropriate administrators to make a determination.
