It is imperative and so important that we communicate regularly with the local, state, and federal elected (and appointed) officials that represent us. If enough voters awake from apathy and send letters, emails, make phone calls, and even visit in person to their offices to make known our opinions, we will be heard, and it will make a difference.
Here are some links to help assist you in finding out who represents you, as well as offering simple and consolidated ways to write your officials:
