Tips for communicating with elected officials
Email is now the preferred method of communication, but phone calls and letters are still effective.
Be courteous and to the point.
Keep letters to one page.
Describe specifically and in your own words how an issue or legislation will affect you or others you know.
Include the bill number or its popular name if you are commenting on specific legislation.
Be sure you give your name, address and phone number.
Give positive feedback. Take the time to also let representatives know when they have done something of which you particularly approve.
Remember, your elected officials represent you!
