LobbvingQuickTips and
"Do's"
and
"Don'ts"
The mosteffectiveway
to
articulateyourviewstoyourelectedofficialsand toaffect
the
outcome of legislation
is
to
sit downand speakwiththemface-to-face
(or
their
key
staff
if
they
are
not
available).
Either one-on-one
or
insmall
to
mediumsizedgroups
with otheractivists
is
best.
While
these
personalvisits
are
extremely
productive,they
also
require
the
mostamountof
planning.
Here
are6
things
to
remember:
1)
lf
youalready
have
appointments
scheduledwith
your
lawmakers,
please
beon
time.
Remember,5 minutesearly
is
on time.
2)
Explain
howproposedlegislationwill directlyaffect
you.
Use specificexamples.
3)
Preparequestionsahead of
time,
Havespecific
questions
in minddealing
withyour
legislator'spointof
view
or stanceon
an
issue.
Makesure
you
get
an
answer.
lf
youaskedyourquestionclearlyanddirectly,youshouldreceivea clearand
direct
answer.
lf
your
legislatorside-steps
the
issueor
does
not answeryour
question,
calmlyrepeat
it.
4)
Always
be
polite.
You
will
neverconvince
your
lawmakeror theirstaffwithrudeness,vulgarity, or
threats,
Even
if
youdisagreewith
the
position
ofyour
legislator,be
courteousand
calm.
There
will
be
other
issues
in
the
future
and
you'llwantto
beable
to
meetwith
the
legislatoragain.
5)
Leave a"LegislatorLeave-Behind"andyourcontactinformationwithyourlawmakeror
staff.
This
will ensure
that
your
lawmakersremembertheissuesyoudiscussed.
6)
Followupyourvisit
witha
letter.
Regardlessof howyour
meeting
goes,
send
a
letter to
your
legislatoror
the
staffperson
you
met
with
thankinghim
or
her
fortheir
timeand
reiterating
the
pointsyou
discussed.
Thisgesture
will
help
the
causeandpavetheway for
