Know the Score, then Take Action!
Say ‘thanks’ … or, ‘no thanks’
Tell your Legislators that you ‘know the score’ and communicate with them regularly.
One of the best ways to influence the voting records of your elected officials is to communicate regularly with them. If your legislators scored well, it’s important to thank them and to support them. If you feel you weren’t well-represented by your legislators’ votes, it’s important to hold them accountable by letting them know what you think about their votes. The Scorecard is your key to staying informed on your legislators’ votes and getting in touch with them.
Calling your legislator directly and sending letters through regular mail remains by far the most effective way to communicate with your legislators.
The Governor and Lieutenant Governor can always be contacted at the State Capitol. Except during the legislative session, state legislators should be contacted in their home districts, as listed on the current Legislators page. Whether you’re congratulating them on their score or expressing your disappointment, be direct, courteous, and polite.
