Writing your elected officials?
Make your message count

When you write your post­card, keep the­se tips in mind:

  • Write a sim­ple, tar­get­ed mes­sage about one bill or issue. It has to fit on a post­card after all.
  • Make your mes­sage per­son­al and tell your sto­ry. Don’t rely on scripts or tem­plates for your mes­sage.
  • Send your post­cards indi­vid­u­al­ly. Even if you write your cards togeth­er as a group, put a stamp on each one and send them out.
  • Address your post­card to your Sen­a­tors’ and Rep­re­sen­ta­tives’ state (dis­trict) offices. Mail to Wash­ing­ton, DC, offices is unbe­liev­ably slow because it goes through scan­ners.
  • Send post­cards to your own elect­ed offi­cials, not to any­one else’s.
  • Be sure to include your mail­ing address if you want a respon­se.
