Campaign Restrictions for State Employees

As the 2012 election nears, keep in mind that Colorado law prohibits state employees from using university resources to endorse or oppose an issue or candidate. Under the Colorado Fair Campaign Practice Act, state employees may not campaign while on the job, take a position on behalf of the university or any part of it, or use the university's infrastructure including phone, fax and e-mail to express political views.

Employees are free to campaign on their own time and expense.

Again, be sure that your views are not represented as the university's or any part of it.

To discuss further the statute or its requirements, please contact Dan Satriana, vice president and General Counsel, at daniel.satriana@unco.edu.
