Tips for Writing a Letter or E-mailing Your Senator:

  1. Always include your name and address in the letter.
  2. 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].
  3. If your writing about a specific piece of legislation, include the bill number and title.
  4. Be courteous.
  5. Include personal information about why the issue matters to you to make your point.
  6. Keep it short – one page if possible and address only one issue in each letter or email.
  7. Thank the person you are writing to for considering your position.
