General tips

Your representative and senators were elected by you and upwards of a million to tens of millions of your fellow Americans, but by law they each only have a small team of correspondents on staff to read and respond to all of their mail.

Be patient and respectful to the staff member you reach — you want them on your side, don’t you?

The way to stand out is to provide a brief but specific personal story about how this bill would affect your life. If you don’t have a personal story, you may want to write or call about a different topic.

Do they want to hear from you? Yes! They need your support next election. But that doesn’t mean you’ll change their mind. On hot issues, their vote is often already made up. But on other issues, you could be their first constituent to weigh in.
