2021 Senate EMAIL List
During Legislative Sessions Only (approximately January – March) these E-mail addresses will give you access to the senators. *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.
Using these email groups helps your communication to go to the Senators instead of into their spam folder.
- Create several identical emails.
- Copy a group list for each individual email.
- Send the emails separately to each group.

Email Group 2
