Here are a few helpful tips to consider when calling your elected official.

Identify yourself as a constituent and give your name and address.

Define the issue with a specific bill number and name.

Acknowledge the legislator (or staff person) by asking about their position and requesting their vote in your favor.

Show respect by listening to them and thanking them.
