You want to contact legislators and encourage them to support SB 699, but you’re not sure the best way to do that.
Should you call them? Or would an email be better? What about snail mail? Isn’t that obsolete? Do you have to be in their district? Do you have to be an adult? Do you have to be registered to vote?
Actually, the purpose is not simply to convince your legislator to vote one way or the other, it is to:
- Bring this bill to the attention of the legislator
- Let the legislator know people are watching them
- Let the legislator know that people want to support them for doing the right thing
- Let the legislator know the this is the right thing
- Let the legislator know that you expect them to do the right thing
- Let the legislator know that you are dedicated and will persist in this matter
- Let the legislator know that there are a lot of people, young and old all over the state who will vote for legislators that are doing the right thing and vote out those who are not
With all these things in mind, it becomes clear… you should call, email and snail mail! Not just once, but throughout the legislative session. January through May. Set an alarm to make a contact every week. Not just you, but every member of your household that can. This is not just for registered voters! Even a five year old can make a postcard*, though they might need your help to address it. If every person on this email list did this, our legislators would be flooded!!!
