Know the Score, Take Action
Tell your legislators that you ‘know the score’
Say ‘thanks’ or ‘no thanks’
One of the best ways to influence the voting records of your elected officials is to communicate regularly with them. If your legislators scored well, it’s important to thank them and to support them. If you feel you weren’t well-represented by your legislators’ votes, it’s important to hold them accountable by letting them know what you think about their votes.
If you don’t know who your legislators are, visit www.CVNM.org and enter your address to search for your legislators.

Communicate with the Governor and your Legislators
Whether you’re congratulating your legislators on their score or expressing your disappointment, be direct, courteous and polite. The most important part of your communication is letting them know that you are paying close attention to how they vote or, in the case of the Governor, what actions she takes on legislation that affects our air, land and water.
Calling your legislator directly and sending letters through regular mail remain by far the most effective ways to communicate with your legislators.
The Governor and Lieutenant Governor can always be contacted at the Roundhouse. Except during the legislative session, state legislators should be contacted in their home districts. Contact information is available on each legislator’s page on this Scorecard website.
