Tips for Emailing Elected Officials
Generally, the same guidelines apply as with writing letters to elected officials.
However, it is important to note that in our technology-driven society, email has become a popular, cost-effective and quick way to share personal views with elected officials.
Because of these benefits, legislators receive a high volume of electronic communication.
When sending an email, be sure to include the bill number/issue topic in the subject line. This will help ensure your message receives proper consideration.

For your local elected officials, search online for their official websites to find their contact information.
