A Call to Action Makes It Easy to Find and Call Your Congressional Representative
If you want to contact your local congressional representative, a call to action will make the whole process much easier. You simply enter your address or location and the app tells you who your representative is, where you can contact him and what you have to say to get your point across.
Better yet, if you’re using the app on your phone, you can tap on the phone number and just call directly from the app. It’s web-only accessible, so you just need to go to the website and provide your location. It also tells you what to expect from your phone call:
You will most likely speak with an intern or Congressional constitutional services officer. They will write down your name, opinion, and pass this information on to your representative. Many offices count the number of voters who are calling to support or oppose various issues. In general, it is better to have a conversation with a person than to leave an answering machine.
As writer and former Congressional staffer Emily Ellsworth explained in a recent tweet network , calling your local representative is the most effective way to make sure your voice is heard. Check out the app at the link below.
