Tips When Contacting Gov. Mills on Your Own

Contrary to what you may know, legislators appreciate hearing from their constituents. It is part of their duties to listen to constituents’ views, and citizens have a legal right to let their opinions be heard. At the end of the day, your elected senator or governor’s duty is to represent your views. When contacting your legislators, be courteous to the staff and be specific about the issue you are calling or emailing about. Here are more pointers to remember when getting in touch with your elected official:

  • Be mindful of timing. Contact your legislator by phone or email when you know that voting on a bill of your concern is coming. A stronger mode of communication is sending mail or scheduling an in-person visit.
  • Establish a relationship with the staff. Know their names and what issue they are assigned to so you know who the right person to get in touch with when the time comes.
  • Regardless of your legislator’s political affiliation, you should voice your position on a certain issue. This provides your elected representative with an overview of how their constituents feel about a topic.
  • Research about the issue you are calling or emailing about. This allows you to formulate helpful questions and provide insightful information.
  • Share any information you get from the call or email to your family, community, or organization. This helps expand the interest or awareness on an issue and strengthen support in the same topics you care about.
