A Guide to the Hatch Act for Federal Employees: The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is an independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency. Our basic authorities come from four federal statutes: the Civil Service Reform Act, the Whistleblower Protection Act, the Hatch Act, and the Uniformed Services Employment & Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). OSC promotes compliance with the Hatch Act by providing advisory opinions about the law. Every year, OSC’s Hatch Act Unit provides over a thousand advisory opinions, enabling individuals to determine whether their contemplated political activities are permitted under the Act. The Hatch Act Unit also enforces compliance with the Act by investigating alleged Hatch Act violations. Depending on the nature and severity of the violation, OSC may seek disciplinary action against an employee. OSC prosecutes Hatch Act violations before the Merit Systems Protection Board.

Contact the Electoral Voters: There are templates you can use to email the electors through the website, or you can collect their email addresses and send a personal message. Remember, the electors vote on 12/19 and our goal is to remind them that Trump is unfit for the presidency. He’s a threat to democracy, worships authoritarians and is upending democracy. Trump is also an autocrat and a demagogue, all things that Hamilton warned us about to protect the republic—we’re asking the electors to simply do their job.
