Visit Your Public Officials in D.C.
Your visit will be most effective if you follow a few simple guidelines:
- Call ahead to find out your appointment options for a visit with your legislator in his or her Capitol Hill office.
- Schedule a specific appointment by phone and be sure to tell the staffer that you are a constituent. Inform the staff member of the number of people attending and the issue at hand. A written request may be required.
- Come early so you have time to get through the security lines and find the correct office.
- Bring support materials with you to the meeting.
