Here are recommendations for making calls to your legislators.
1. Identify yourself by name and address.
2. Identify the bill you want to talk about by name and number.
3. Briefly state your position and how you would like your legislator to vote.
4. Ask for your legislator's view on the bill or issue; then ask for a commitment to vote for your position. Don't argue if the legislator takes a position against you or is unwilling to take a stand.
5. Supply requested information as quickly as possible. The legislature moves rapidly during the session.
6. If you cannot speak to your legislator directly, talk to a secretary or legislative aide, identify yourself, the bill you want to talk about by name and number, and state how you would like your legislator to vote. Legislator's staff are very reliable and will tell the legislator that you called and what you said.
7. Follow up the call with a note thanking them for their time. Use the note as an opportunity to briefly restate your position.
