Letter Writing: Even in this age of electronic correspondence, writing a letter is

still the preferred method for expressing your opinion to legislators. It is the

one which carries the greatest weight. Our suggestion is to make your letter brief

and to the point. Keep to one issue. If you want your senator to vote yes on a

particular bill, all you really need to do is write that you are supportive of

that bill (give the bill number and a generic description, such as The Black Bear

Protection Bill). Let’s face it, you don’t have time to research and WRITE a long

letter and the person you are sending it to doesn’t have time to READ a long

letter. Short and to the point will get your message across. Your letter can

either be mailed or faxed.

 

Phone Calls: Don’t be afraid to call. Most often you will get a receptionist or an

aide to the legislator who will take your opinion and ask for your name and

address. That’s it. It's a rare occasion when you will have time to discuss the

issue at hand and an even rarer occasion when you will be asked why you have taken

that particular stance on the issue. They are generally tallying calls in favor of

or opposed to a bill. If by some chance your legislator answers the phone, simply

express your opinion clearly and firmly. And remember, they put their pants on one

leg at a time!

 

Email: This is the least preferred method of corresponding with a legislator. On

March 19, 2001, the Washington Post reported on a study about email correspondence

with federal legislators. The study showed that most e-mails going to senators and

representatives are from individuals and groups outside their districts, and many

"are routinely ignored by the offices because of a lack of resources or

capability." Although no study was performed on the state level, we can assume the

same applies. It’s too easy for mass emails to go out and legislative offices by

and large are not equipped to deal with the volume that can be generated by one

email alert. If you must use email, treat it as if it were a letter. Put their

name and address at the top and at the bottom of your email, put your full name

and mailing address. Do NOT just use your screen name.

 

Form Letters/Postcards: This also is not a preferable means of communicating with

your elected officials. Unless they received tens of thousands of them, yours will

have little impact.
