How to Call Your Congressional Representatives

Plan the Call

  • Call instead of write
  • Call the local office instead of the national one
  • Call for each issue that concerns you. Don’t do it all in one phone call. Each phone call counts and they have to document each one separately. This way each issue will get it’s own attention.
  • Call each day until you get a concrete reply or until the issue is resolved.
