Find Your Elected Officials

YOUR voice matters.  Turn your PASSION for an issue into ACTION.

Legislators want to hear from their constituents. The most effective way to contact them is via email; however you may also phone or send a fax. Mailed letters must go through intense security procedures which can delay their delivery.

Find Your Federal and State Elected Officials

 Find Your Local Elected Officials


Before you contact your elected officials…

Educate yourself:

  • Read newspapers, websites and blogs
  • Contact local community organization for background information
  • Voice your point-of-view to family, friends and work colleagues
  • Know the Federal, State, Baltimore City and Baltimore County legislative process.

Create a clear message:

  • Clearly state your purpose (support/oppose a bill)
  • Be concise
  • Let them know you are a constituent (you live in their district, belong to their party, or voted for them)
  • Reference the bill number(s), if possible
  • Include key information (how the issue will impact your community)
  • Support your position using examples
  • Reference only one issue per letter
  • Who is your Representative?
