Before I can contact my elected officials, I need to know who they are. Turns out, there are a lot of ’em. Today’s tiny step: collect all the contact information for my various elected officials.
Here are the links I found to help you compile your own list.
Commoncause.org makes it easy to get a list of elected officials: just enter your zip code. It tells me my US Senators, my US Representative, and my state Senator and Representative. It includes links to their sites for more information.
Don’t forget your county government. Enter your zip code, get a list of your county elected officials and links for more information.
Find your city government. This information is much less centralized, so I don’t have a handy link for you, but it should be very easy to find.
Got all that information? Good. We’re going to need it.
Once you’ve got all the information, read this storify to find out how to contact your representatives the most effectively.
