In order to be effective in influencing legislation, the right people must be contacted in the right way.
Always be polite and identify:
- who you are
- where you live
- your address
- your phone number
Do this for every form of communication you use – a call, fax or email without this information will be ignored by most legislators. Never cover more than one bill at a time, and be brief, but polite. You may contact a legislature by phone, fax, email or mail, but it is best to use three methods of communication. By contacting a legislator and key people, (such as committee chairs and members and conferees) a powerful message is sent that a certain bill or issue is important to Oklahomans. Remember, a non-voter or person who lives outside the legislator’s district carries less weight than a voter who lives in the district, but all communication is important. If the line is busy… do not give up.
