How to Contact your Legislators

1. Find Your Legislator
Find the name and addresses of your legislators as above.  Once you’ve found your Legislator ’s name, click on it to be directed to her/his webpage to find the email, web-based contact or mailing address.

2. Customize Your Letter:
You can find customizable templates in the toolkits below.  To customize the letter, look for the sections of the letter that are enclosed in brackets like this: [Your Name Here].  These are the places where you should personalize the letter, such as adding the name and address of your elected official, your name, your story, etc. Remember to update ALL of the highlighted sections of the letter.

3. Send Your Letter/Email
To mail your letter, once you have customized the bracketed sections of the letter, you can print it. If you’re sending an email, copy and paste your edited letter into a blank email.
