Calling/Faxing Congress To find your representative’s phone or fax number, call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Senator and/or Representative’s office.
When you call, ask to speak with the congressperson’s aide who handles the issue about which you wish to comment.
After identifying yourself, tell the aide you would like to leave a message, such as : “Please tell Senator/Representative (Name) that I support/oppose (S.___/H.R.____).”
You may then state your reasons for your support or opposition to the bill, but don’t feel like you have to be an expert on the issue. Your voice is what matters.
Writing Congress A typed or handwritten letter is a very effective way of communicating with a congressional office. Here are some suggestions to make your letter as persuasive as possible:
Identify yourself and your purpose for writing in the first paragraph of the letter. If you are writing about a specific piece of legislation, identify it accordingly, e.g., House bill: H.R. ___; Senate bill: S.____.
Be brief. Keep your letter to one page and one issue.
Be polite and include key information, using examples and/or a personal connection to the issue if possible.
Note: If you have access to a fax machine, faxing is still more effective and faster than snail mail.
