Communicating with your representatives

Some tips when e-mailing representatives:

  • send individual messages; "spamming" makes a bad impression and your message may be ignored
  • include your home address, to be sure your representative knows you are from their state or district (this is not always apparent from your email address)
  • The University of North Texas Library offers this page of tips for government research and writing, including a box entitled "Letters to Government Officials"
  • and the American Library Association's PDF "Library Advocate's Handbook" includes a section on "Dealing with Legislators"

Some general information on keeping tabs on government can be found at this Citizen Journalist's Guide to Open Government.
