Contact your elected officials
Get phone numbers and postal, street and email addresses for Federal, State and county governments and agencies
What is most effective? An in-person meeting is ideal, a phone call is excellent, a unique carefully written piece of snail mail is good (if there is no hurry), and an email is fine if the other ways to get in touch are not possible.
