How to Contact Your SC Legislator

Do you know how to contact your representatives?

It’s very easy to draft a note or leave a voicemail with your input and opinion about any legislative issues. But, I have to confess that I didn’t know what to say though. Finding the rep’s contact information is the easy part. But, what do I say? And does my perspective really matter anyway?

In fact, legislators actually do pay attention to their constituents. That’s us. They want to hear our perspective on issues. We don’t need to wait till it’s a red-alert situation. We should establish a relationship with the legislators before there is any concerns developing in the legislature.

Be sure to state your concerns in a respectful, professional tone. Ask questions about their position on the matter. When you get a response, be sure to say thanks for their time and effort to reply.
