Guidelines for calling legislators

Return to Get Involved

A flood of phone calls to a legislator’s office on one side of a pending issue can often influence the legislator’s vote.  Generally, “telephone tree” campaigns are directed at the home district office of a legislator, but they can also be very effective when directed at the Washington or Austin office, depending on whether it’s federal or state legislation.  Phone calls are especially helpful on the day of an important vote.  When calling your legislator, always remember to request a written response and give the office your name and address.
