How to Contact Elected Officials

Part of the Politics For Dummies Cheat Sheet

If you feel strongly about an issue and want to exercise your newfound political skills, just pick up your phone and voice your opinion to the people who represent you. If you cannot find the phone numbers of your congressperson, state representative, or state senator listed in the government section of your phone book, try contacting one of the following offices:

  • County board of elections or voter registration

  • State election board

  • Local office of the League of Women Voters

  • Public library

  • State or county headquarters of the Republican or Democratic party

Ask the person to give you the following information (make sure you have your address book with you):

  • Your congressional district, congressperson, and the office phone number

  • Your legislative district, state legislator, and the main number at the statehouse

  • Your state senate district, state senator, and a phone number at the statehouse

Ask whether the official has a toll-free number and/or an e-mail address. Check your voter registration card; it may list your ward and precinct. That information makes it easier for the county office to determine which district you live in.
