Want to Vote? Write Your Congressman!

Are you passionate about an issue?  Any issue?  For something?  Against something?  Write your Congressman.

It’s easy.  Do a google search for their name.  Go to their official website.  They’ll have a form you can fill out, with your name, address, and your message.  You don’t even have to open your own email application.  It will take less than five minutes.

Why is this a good idea?  Because those letters get read.  They don’t all get read by the main reciepient, but lots do.  And here’s why:  Nobody writes their congressmen.  The people who do are die-hard, obsessed, passionate individuals, who not only vote, but are activists and mobilize others to vote.  That’s what you look like when you write to your congressman: someone who cares.  Someone who matters.  They might not agree with what you have to say, but you will be heard.  In our country of three hundred million, being heard is hard to do.
