Tips On Telephoning Your Representatives

To find your representative's phone number, you may use our searchable
online congressional directory or call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at
(202)224-3121 and ask for your Senator's and/or Representative's
office.
Remember that telephone calls are often taken by a staff member, not
the member of Congress. Ask to speak with the aide who handles the
issue to which you wish to comment.

After identifying yourself, tell the aide you would like to leave a
brief message, such as: "Please tell Senator/Representative (Name)
that I support/oppose (S.___/H.R.8___)."

You will also want to state reasons for your support or opposition to
the bill. Ask for your Senator's or Representative's position on the
bill. You may also request a written response to your telephone call.

Tips On Writing Congress

The letter or email is the most popular choice of communication with a
congressional office. If you decide to write a letter or email, this
list of helpful suggestions will improve the effectiveness of the
letter:


Your purpose for writing should be stated in the first paragraph of
the letter. If your letter pertains to a specific piece of
legislation, identify it accordingly, e.g., House bill: H. R. ____,
Senate bill: S.____.

Be courteous, to the point, and include key information, using
examples to support your position.

Address only one issue in each letter; and, if possible, keep the
letter to one page.
