Guide To Calling Your Legislator

Calling your national, state, or local government official is surprisingly easy.  In fact, if you start making a lengthy speech on the phone, you might even get cut off.  Here are the five key points you need share when calling your representative:

  • Your name

  • Representative’s name and that you are their constituent

  • Organization with which you are involved (if applicable)

  • Name of Bill or Legislation

  • Your support or disapproval of that Bill
