Contacting your (local and national) legislators DOES make a difference.
- Get a clear message about your issue.
- Target your message to key elected officials and legislators.
Methods of Contact
- Personal conversation
- Form letter
- Personal letter
- Social Media (Facebook and Twitter)
Personal, thoughtful, well-written letters have a significant impact on lawmakers, especially when the letters are from their constituents. Here are the four most important things to remember when writing elected officials:
- Tell them you’re a constituent (that you live in their district).
- Tell them the issue (when the Legislature is not in session) or the bill number and subject (when the Legislature is in session).
- Explain the local impact.
- Be clear about the action you want them to take (support/oppose the bill, etc.).
