- Email your member of City Council and ask them to pass a resolution on the subject.
- Email your state senator and/or representative and ask them to give a floor speech or sponsor a resolution on the subject.
- Email the guy you hope wins your party’s nomination, and ask them to remember the issue in their stump speeches and policy statements.
- Email the members of your state’s party nominating committee, your party’s national committee, and (if they’ve already been selected) your local delegation members, reminding them of the importance this issue is to you in the general election.
- Write a letter to the editor (most newspapers now prefer them to come from a web form!) Short and sweet and to the point. Include the web address when applicable. Don’t forget the tiny local-only papers. Everyone who reads those, reads the whole darned thing.
I recommend either calling or sending mail (to a regional office, not DC) your federal Senators and Representative - letters and calls weigh more in their minds. Stamps for the three of them will cost you less than a soda from a machine, and you have the free monthly minutes to spare.
Oh, and for the brave, there’s usually a “call about whatever you want” hour on your local talk radio station. Generally before noon on Saturdays. :)
(Don’t call politicians from your work phone; it’s quite often against the rules even when a normal personal call isn’t.)
