NOW YOU KNOW THE SCORE CONGRESSIONAL SCORECARD
Take Action! FOR THE 110TH CONGRESS
Let your representative and senators know what you think about their scores.

Best Practices For Communicating with Congress
Excerpted and adapted from a helpful report by the Congressional Management Foundation

Sending a letter to [or calling] a member of Congress is not equivalent to casting a ballot or answering a survey, where the
choice with the most responses “wins.” Sending a letter to a member of Congress is more like giving a speech at a town meeting
or writing a letter to the editor. The content matters. The operating assumption of many congressional staff is that the more
thought constituents give to the communication, the more passionately they care about the issue. Quality messages are those
that are:

1. Personalized. Even just one relevant and personalized sentence or paragraph in an otherwise generic message
conveys some sense of a constituent’s sentiment. The more personalized the message, the better. It significantly helps the
communication if one’s personal views, experiences, and the reasons for one’s opinions are included in the message.

2. Short. Congressional staff review hundreds of letters every week, so covering an issue in a few short paragraphs helps
them immensely.

3. Targeted. Messages that convey knowledge of specific legislation, the member’s stance on the issue, and the impact the
legislation will have on the member’s constituents, district, or state tend to be much more persuasive than generic messages.

4. Informative. Congressional offices do not have the resources to research and track every bill, so they focus on legislation
being considered in their members’ committees or by the full House or Senate. Often constituents bring new legislation to
their attention, requiring staff to do research so as to be able to discuss and respond to it. For this reason, quality messages
contain specific information about the legislation in question.
