What Is the Best Way to Contact Senior Senator Shelby?
You have many options when deciding how to Senator Richard Shelby. Among them, there are pros and cons. Use our handy guides to figure out what the right mode of contact is for you.
1. Choose your method of contact.
Curious on how to choose your method of contact? Check out our article here.
- Phone Calls: Check out our article on the upsides and downsides of phone calls and if they really work here before you make your decision.
- Meetings: A meeting in person is often the most effective way to get your point across, as emotion and sincerity translates much better when not filtered through the internet. However, you’ve got to come prepared and make the most of your limited time with the representative. For those who struggle with nerves, this may be a more high-stakes and stressful mode of communication.
- Social Media: While social media is a great way of figuring out who your representative is and what they value, it does not serve well as a mode of contact. This is because government representatives' social media accounts are managed by their campaign staff. We would recommend against making formal contact through social media.
- Emails: Emails can be effective, but they must be written professionally and clearly to make an impact. Set out in the first sentence or two what specific action you want your representative to take. Use a formal tone throughout and conclude the email by thanking them and reminding the representative of the action they should take.
2. Once you’ve chosen, locate their contact information
If you are looking to address a specific issue of the bill, make sure to check out the other senators that sit on the committee and consider contacting them as well. Need help finding specific contact information?

3. Do some mental prep
Practice your argument and make sure to perfect it, as you will have limited time to communicate and each senator has many constituents they have to talk to every day. Remember that your voice matters and your senator wants to hear from the people they represent.
