Congressional offices tally the number of calls they get about an issue, and pass the information along to representatives to consider. When there’s a large volume of calls about an issue, they’re forced to take a stand and respond.
Make sure to know where your representative stands on issues and call effectively based on those stances. If they haven't taken a stand, you can let them know you expect them to.
It is in the legislator's best interest to accurately represent his or her base because they want to remain in office. Making your voice heard applies pressure for action.
Voting on an issue is the least of what a legislator can do. If a rep sees their base advocating strongly for an issue, it incentivizes them to advocate for it publicly and within their chamber, or they can even ask for a bill not to be brought up at all.
While democratic representatives usually stand for liberal issues, it’s not a good idea to expect them to always vote along party lines. If a rep thinks their constituency doesn’t care about an issue, they can become complacent and waiver support. It's our job to let them know we expect them to fight.
If you have a strong opinion about an issue, it’s extremely important to voice it, no matter what your rep’s position may be. Make sure to let them know we’ll be watching their vote.
