The United States, as a democracy, is run by the people. People who are old enough to vote elect those who they think best represents what they want and need to see in their state or country. However, once someone is elected, it can be difficult to know how to get ahold of them. Luckily, this short article contains all of the ins and outs to finding email addresses for senators and congressmen.
How to Email Congress
Every state has a unique number of congress members based on the state’s population. For this reason, some states have many more congress members than others. No matter how many congressmen belong to each state, all of their emails and phone numbers are listed on the House of Representative’s website.
While the phone numbers are clearly listed on the front page of the aforementioned website, it can be a little trickier to find the congressmen’s email addresses. For this, voters should click on the congressman they want to email. When this happens, they will most often be redirected to their website. From there, voters should look for a “contact” button, which will often release an email address he or she can use to contact the congressman.
How to Email the Senate
Each state has two senators, no matter their population. For this reason, it’s much easier to know who to email about important state matters. also, it’s much easier for the Senate website to directly post email address.
Use the senate website to see a list of senators. Below each senator’s name is a link voters can use to contact him or her. These links will either lead directly to an email address or to a contact form or website.
All in all, emailing a congressman or senator can seem a bit tricky, but if you know where to look, that difficult task suddenly becomes much easier. Use the resources in this article to make your voice heard!
