Dear Ross: Excellent thought. Andrew and Louis may also have some
thoughts on the composition.
The proper way to write a letter to a Senator is as follows:
The Honorable (full name)
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510
Dear Senator (last name):
To a Representative:
The Honorable (full name)
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Representative (last name):
Members can find the names of their Senators and Representatives by going
to the Senate and the House web sites. (Perhaps someone will look up the
URL and post it for us;-) Figuring the districts can be a problem without
a map of the State showing the districts. Some times you can figure from
the names of the cities where they have offices *in* their Districts.
I have a free booklet from the Federal Voting Assistance Program. That
agency is tasked with supporting absentee votes under the "Uniformed and
Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA)". For a copy, call
A much more comprehensive list is available from the U.S. Chamber of
Commerce (COCUSA), "Grassroots Action Information Network (GAIN)", TEL:
202-463-5604, FAX: 202-463-3190. Single copies up to nine copies, $17.00
each plus $2.25 postage ($14.00 for COCUSA members).
