Phoning Your Legislator
Phone calls should be very brief; if what you have to say takes more than a minute or so, write a letter.
Introduce yourself with your name and where you live.
You will most likely be unable to speak directly with your representative, so relay your message to his or her staff. Ask to speak with the person in charge of your particular issue.
Briefly state the purpose of your call and explain which bill you would like your legislator to support or oppose.
Ask what your legislator’s stance is on the particular issue.
Thank whoever took your call.
