Communicate With Elected Officials
As a voting
constituent, you have the ability to influence legislation. Your
lawmakers at the federal, state, and local levels are elected by you
and work for you. They care about the concerns of their constituents
and the policies that affect the communities they represent. Letting
your legislators know your views on specific issues shows them you are
keeping track of their votes and encourages them to vote your way.
There are several ways to communicate with your elected officials.
Listed below are a few tips and suggestions that will maximize the
effectiveness of your efforts.
