Tips for Writing a Letter or E-mailing Your Senator:
- Always include your name and address in the letter.
- State your purpose for writing in the first sentence of the letter. Be specific. For example: I am writing to urge your support for [state what you want support for].
- If your writing about a specific piece of legislation, include the bill number and title.
- Be courteous.
- Include personal information about why the issue matters to you to make your point.
- Keep it short – one page if possible and address only one issue in each letter or email.
- Thank the person you are writing to for considering your position.
