10 Tips for Talking Politics at Work

How to Survive Election Season Without Killing Your Coworkers or Getting Fired

9. Don't Use Work Email/Supplies to Spread Your Message

We know you care who gets elected, but is it really worth your job?

Almost every company has email regulations and chances are, they include not using work email for personal reasons. More than that, your employer almost certainly does not want you taking work distribution lists and using them to spread messages either promoting your candidate or trashing the opponent. People get enough spam in their personal folders, they certainly don't need you clogging their inbox at work. And we're guessing you don't want to be fired for violating company policy.

Besides, it's safe to assume people are being barraged by more information than they care for during election season. No need for you to add to the chaos unnecessarily.
