Contacting Congresspeople, Senators and Other Elected Officials

Learn how to identify and contact your elected representatives.

Many members of congress and other elected officials are contactable electronically, though many choose to streamline the communications process through an official contact form on their website rather than by publicly disclosing an email address.

The resources below should help you identify your elected representatives and provide you with a number of ways to contact each of them. Some are run by official bodies, others are private efforts; if in doubt, why not check two or more sources of information before making contact?
