Points to Remember for Writing to Legislators:

Limit your letter to one page. People have limited time, thus one page letters are often more effective and better received.

A letter may be either typed or handwritten. In today’s electronic age, a handwritten letter can stand out.

Get to the point. State the problem and your opinion. A short personal story can be uie effective. Keep it positive.

Check your grammar, spelling, and punctuation. These are educated people. Your letter will be better received when it is written properly.

Mention that you are a voter. Politicians do value voters’ opinions. Expound on your subject and keep to the point.
