Knowing who your representatives are, and what they’re up to, can help you make more informed voting decisions. You can contact them directly with questions, or to advocate for policies and causes that matter to you. Add your reps’ contact info to your phone so you can tell them what’s on your mind whenever you want.
Who Are My Home State Reps?
There are two tools we like to look up your local, state and federal reps:
- Common Cause’s lookup tool is easiest to use but may not show your local officials
- USA.gov’s tool includes most local offices but is not as slick.
