Tips for writing an email to your Legislators

Address your letter correctly

— Use "Dear Senators" "Dear Senator ( )" or "Dear Representives" or "Dear Representative ( )"

( Bills that begin with SB are Senate bills, HB are Representive (House) bills)

Keep it brief

 — Keep letters to one page. Try to discuss only one bill or issue in a letter.

Identify yourself

 — Begin with an introduction of yourself or the organization on whose behalf you are writing. Use a simple statement, such as "I am a third-grade teacher at _______ elementary school" or "On behalf of the members of the ________…."

Avoid informal language

— E-mail to a legislator should be treated as seriously as a written letter. Resist the temptation to use the informal language and symbols often associated with e-mail communications. Never use impolite language or make "demands." 

Get to the point

 — Follow your introduction with a brief statement of your issue or concern, such as "We urge your support for S.B. _____, which will ________." If you are writing in reference to a specific bill, include the bill number. Follow your opening paragraph with a concise explanation of why you support or oppose the particular bill or issue. A few strong, well-thought-out arguments are much more effective than a laundry list of reasons to support or oppose a bill. Whenever possible, use bullet points to outline your arguments.

Relate it to home

 — Help the legislator understand why your position is important to his or her constituents.  If possible, include a local anecdote illustrating the problem you are seeking to address. Avoid the use of form letters or generic postcards — use your own knowledge and experience to inform the legislator.

Include your full address and zip code

— Make sure the text of your e-mail includes your full name and street address, including zip code. Many legislative offices screen e-mails for address information identifying the sender as a constituent.
