2021 Idaho Representatives EMAIL
Reaching out to our legislators is critical as they go to vote on bills this session. Here is an easy to cut and paste list for our representatives. Due to spam filters that the Capitol has, we have to send our emails out in a group of a dozen or fewer names. Copy and paste your email and send the same email to ALL the legislators in EACH group.
During Legislative Sessions Only (approximately January – March) these E-mail addresses will give you access to your representatives. *Keep in mind most don’t check these email accounts outside of session. If you know your district you can find their complete contact information at the Idaho Legislature Website here. If you don’t know your district you can look that up by address here.
When they are voting on a bill of importance it’s critical that you send your correspondence to ALL the legislators. Sometimes you will only be communicating with those on a specific committee that is voting upon a bill. (Find Health Committee email lists here). Other times you will want to communicate with your personal representatives to let them know how you want them to represent you simply look up your district and find your 2 representatives and 1 senator.
SUBJECT LINE – EASY TO IDENTIFY TOPIC/BILL
Your subject line should reflect the bill number and your preferred vote (Vote Yes or Vote No). At the very least they will be able to track the correspondence of citizens in favor or opposed to the legislation.
BODY OF THE EMAIL – EASY TO READ
Use bullet points to summarize your reasons. Make it easy for them to scan the main points. If the bill has a direct impact on your family and community make those points concisely.
Try to avoid having attachments to your email these tend to get filtered out and put in the spam folder. If you have hard copies that need to be seen by the legislator those should be sent by regular mail.
SIGNATURE – IDENTIFY YOURSELF
If you are in their district, they represent you directly and should know. You don’t have to include a complete mailing address or phone number.
