Churchill famously said, “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.” While democracy isn’t perfect, it is there to represent us—that means we can voice our thoughts, ideas, and opinions to our elected officials. If you want to have your say, and get taken seriously by your senator, it’s vital to write to them in the right way.

Remember, they’re there to represent you (For the people, by the people), but you need to make that easier for them to do. Your senator and their staff gets a deluge of correspondence every day. In this avalanche of emails, letters, phone calls, and social media, you need to keep things crisp, understandable, and easy to respond to.

Here’s the SaneBox Scoop on doing just that.

 

Work out if you need to write to your state senator or your federal senator

We know you’d die of embarrassment (or at least be very mildly annoyed) if you wrote to the wrong senator by mistake, so the first thing to do is work out who you need to write to. If it’s a states issue, state legislation, or something that’s restricted to affecting you locally, you need your state senator.

If it’s a major political issue, comes from Washington, or has wide-reaching implications, your U.S. senator is probably the best bet.

Of course, it might be that you don’t need to write to a senator at all. Some issues might be better handled by your congressman, governor, township, agency, or other official body.
