Are you new to the area or just want to contact your State or U.S. Representatives or Senators? We can help you find and contact them if you would like.
It is important to let them know why you are calling and what issue you are calling about. You will sometimes be able to speak directly to your senator or representative, but more often you will talk to a staff person in the member’s office. This person keeps track of how many people called and their positions on issues and provides a summary to the member. Be assured that your call does count, even if you are not able to speak directly to your senator or representative.
It is usually most effective to call your own senators and representatives, as each is primarily concerned with residents from his or her district. However, you may occasionally find it useful to call other members, if they are on a certain committee or in a particular position to help get a bill passed.
