Contact Public Officials

There are many ways you can communicate with a public official: letter, phone call, fax, e-mail, postcard, letter to the editor, and personal visit. Which method to use depends on several factors. Time, location, and knowledge about a particular issue influence the decision.

Telephone Call

 When a vote or action is imminent, the phone call is the appropriate tool. Keep in mind, your message depends on with whom you are talking. Generally, you will reach the receptionist or administrative assistant. This person works very hard, but usually on activities not related to public policy decisions.

Personal Letter

Time permitting, the personal letter is a very effective response. The letter allows for you to articulate your position on an issue. At the grassroots level, a legible hand-written letter is most effective. Of course, the staff will welcome a typed letter. The letter is preferred over a postcard, petition, or form letter. You can always transfer the message of a form letter into a personal letter.


The verdict is still out on e-mail. Some public officials value e-mail. Others may not be technologically sophisticated. You may want to test out the effectiveness of e-mail with your public official. In your e-mail be sure to ask for a response. Always include your name, e-mail and mailing address.
