Email the President

Do you want to send an email to the President of the United States? Or, maybe you would like to email the Vice President, or one of the members of the House of Representatives, or the Senate. This article explains how to email the President and other members of congress.

Emailing the President, your senator, House representative, or another member of Congress or the government s is an important part of keeping elected officials informed of our opinions. With today’s ever-increasing dissatisfaction with those who govern, it is important to understand how to communicate your thoughts, feelings, and ideas to elected officials.

Sending an email to your congressman, or congressperson is an efficient way to let the government and its elected officials know that you hold them accountable for their campaign promises and actions while in office. Don’t wait for the next election time to come around to voice your opinion. If you feel strongly about something, send an email to your congressman.

What happens when you send an email?

In most cases, you will initially receive a canned response from the government. You may get a response from the government office that you emailed, but the response is usually written by staff members. 

In rare cases, you may receive an email from the actual government official. Again, this is rare. Given the volume of emails they receive, it is usually not feasible for the official to personally respond to messages.

The following will help you get in touch with various members of the U.S. government via email:

How to Send an E-mail to the President or Vice President

Use the Online Form

If you want to email the President of the United States, Joe Biden, or the White House in general, use this online form. Use the same form to contact the Vice President, Kamala Harris.

In the past, the White House had a general email address (president@whitehouse.gov for the POTUS and vice.president@whitehouse.gov for the VPOTUS) for these types of messages. However, the White House disabled these addresses. Now, the only way to send a message is through the online form.

Use Social Media

Following are the primary social media accounts for the current administration:

Write a Letter

The online form is the fastest way to send a message, but if you prefer to write or type a letter, keep the following in mind:

  • Use 8 1/2 by 11-inch paper
  • Either type your message or handwrite it as neatly as possible
  • Include your return address on the letter and on the envelope
  • Mail the letter to The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500.

If you have any additional questions about how to email Donald Trump or Mike Pence, write, or send a message to the President, please post a comment below.

Contact the White House By Phone

If you wish to call the President, or the White House, use the following phone numbers:

  • For general comments, call 202-456-1111
  • To reach the switchboard, call 202-456-1414
  • For TTY/TTD, use Comments: 202-456-6213 or the Visitor’s Office: 202-456-2121

Let’s face it, it is highly unlikely that you will get to speak with any sitting POTUS directly on the phone.

How to Send an E-mail Your House Representative

To find your representative, search the House of Representatives database by zip code. As an alternative, visit the Representative’s personal website. Most government websites have email addresses and mailing addresses listed on the Contacts page.

Many websites also offer a contact form, but we recommend using this only as a last resort. Beware, many online contact forms go to the website maintenance team and often don’t reach the representative or their staff. If you want a response, send a direct email or a letter.

How to Send an E-mail Your Senator

To find your state Senator(s), select your Senator from the state-by-state list at the United States Senate’s Web site. Note, the list is in alphabetical order and provides the following information for each senator:

  • Senator’s full name
  • Political party affiliation and state they represent
  • Mailing address
  • Phone number
  • Link to an email contact form, usually on the Senator’s website.

Also, you can call the United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the state Senator’s office you request.

Questions and Comments

If you have any questions about how to email the President, Donald Trump, U.S. representatives, members of Congress, or other government officials, please leave a message below. Please don’t post a comment and think that it will be forwarded to the White House, Congress, the Biden administration, President Joe Biden, or Kamala Harris.

If you’re looking for a way to contact the former President, Donald Trump, the best method would likely be through The Trump Organization. To contact the former Vice President, Mike Pence, we recommend using one of his social media accounts on Facebook or Twitter.

  1. I am retired and want to donate directly to former President Trump. I don’t trust most of the sites and refuse to donate to NRCC for obvious reasons.

    How do I know that I am donating directly to Trump and not to ancillary organizations? Please help.

    I called the number on the web site and it is “no longer in service.”

    • Donna Underwood, Please do not waist your money. You’ve been conned by one of the best con artists. He is using that money for no good and to try and stay relevant to take other peoples money and to pay his legal fees. Look at our country, if he was even trying to do a good job there’s no way the country would have fallen down so bad. He is literally harming the whole world! Other countries look down on us now like never before. We deserve better!

  2. Why is the CDC ordering Americans to wear masks. They have no constitutional authority to mandate anything. And why is I don’t hears about one Senator or Representative taking them to task.

    Represent us or don’t come back asking for our vote!

  3. Members of Congress are so concerned with making money from lobbyists and attending social functions, they make it very difficult for constituents to communicate directly with them. After a few weeks in D.C., memory of their constituency fades into the fog of their consciousness until the date of the next election approaches the horizon.

    We can’t even get their direct email addresses. They steal time from us, by forcing us to use their Web site forms, which takes more time to fill out, and it’s harder to perform on a mobile form.

    Event of the last three decades seem to indicate that as more and more Tech Oligarchs and other run-of-the-mill billionaires flex their muscular wealth, transforming it into unchecked, unbalanced political control, “We the People” become chattel manipulated through processes of insincere informational gaslighting, if not direct dishonest fraud, the enemies of Truth, and direct threats to our real local interests.

    Think about it.

  4. I am so mad at Democrats who is doing all this problem i am Republican not a Democrat you Democrats stole the election from Trump he was the best president we ever had last 4 years you Democrats and media want to rip him apart that is wrong for what you guys are doing to your president and his family i just want to say i voted for Donald Trump and you guys can’t destroy your country this a free country not a socialist country there is only i person who is in charge on earth and that our heavenly father and savior he is the one who sent the covid 19 virus i don’t know how president JoeBiden going to stop it because heavenly father is the one who is in charge of it and to all the Democrats needs know that heavenly father know,s who are you see what you guys doing so i just want you Democrats to know you need to repeat repeat for the kingdom of heaven is at hand the second coming is coming soon and what you guys did was wrong you will pay for it Democrats thank you

    • You apparantly have the education of a 3rd grader, therefore, I would insist you get an education, in English/English Composition, so that someone might be able to figure out what it is you might be saying

      • His post may be a little rambled, but I clearly understood his frustration. People with “3rd grade education” can have an opinion too and those of us with “so called” higher education should gracefully bend low to allow their expression of others . . . .

        • As much as I am not a fan of DT, I do agree that attacking one’s intelligence or education is NOT okay. I don’t do the “what about…?” either. That is never a good excuse. Let’s beat them with better policies, not insults.

    • You are very wrong, and misled. I’m sorry for that and I’m mad that this happened to millions of people. But the ones who saw trump was the biggest liar and a huge failure knew we had to vote like never before and we did! That is all there is to it. trump, right wing media and all the Republicans in government know this. They know they are lying and doing it for their own gain. If they don’t have the trump following to vote for them they will lose and won’t get to keep making millions from their kickbacks and legal bribes. That is what our government has become, a corrupt corporate owned steal all they can, psychpathic group of con jobs. Advice: Fox is corporate owned like the others only worse, because they repeat lies until they are stuck in your mind and don’t report what is taking place. Their viewers are the most uninformed and misled, they should be taken off, like Ireland did them. Best to you, I hope you at least think about what I’ve said, for all our sakes 🤍

  5. The election was a travesty. We want to be able to present the evidence and have it fairly judged. This was not allowed to happen and this country is at a boiling point. These fool tech tyrants are now censoring over 74 million Americans and the government wants to pass a new patriot act to label all of us domestic terrorists. Let us vent and allow the energy to dissipate. Trying to stamp us out just leads to hardening of lines and extreme elements gaining ground. What a healer Biden is calling us all Nazis. What a joke. They have decriminalized crime and criminalized small businesses. They have said being patriotic is being a terrorist. Subversion is rampant. All of our institutions are compromised. Corporations, Big Tech, our Military Complex, our Intelligence services, and China now run our lives. All of these Trump was battling. I am usually a fairly moderate person but our country is in a dangerous time. It having the consent of the governed is a powder keg. I pray for us and will work for good to prevail.

  6. I used to be very patriotic. The kind that always flies the flag and has decoration celebrating the wonderful United States of America!. I instruct all the children in my family about how lucky they are to be an American and that in the USA anyone could no matter how they started, grow up to be president. I always vote, and am involved in my community. But. I am not like that now. You thought you could steal our country and impeach OUR PRESIDENT? The reptiles in our swamp on the Potomac have reveled themselves. (except NANCY&Shrillary there obviously cold blooded reptilian old nasty bags). You have taken the shining city on a hill and purified it with your evil. You have tried to take what is ours. You will feel the justice you so richly deserve. The deplorables are coming for you. You took great pleasure in causing pain.
    The deplorables are going to come for you. You think you have beat PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP?
    WE are ALL DONALD J TRUMP

  7. To My Government Representation,
    I will never accept this elections’ results if you do not do a full audit, not just recount, of the ballots in all the states that are being questioned by President Trump and millions of Americans.
    I see three reasons you would not want to support the idea there was fraud. 1 you are part of the fraud: 2 you have no guts to stand up for what is honest and true: 3 you are being bought off by anti Americans.
    I am angry and sadden that there is truly so much corruption in our government.
    I also want you to stand up and stop the COVID scare. The numbers we have been told are so skewed. Why do you want to be part of tearing down America?
    A fearful American, that we will never be able to have a true honest election if you don’t start arresting those like Freeman who did do illegal acts.
    Kathleen Boden
    A civil war is coming if you don’t stand up for audit or total revote.

  8. DEAR COMMANDER IN CHIEF – PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

    HOPE YOU ARE STILL IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THOSE DEMONRATS, NO I SPELLED IT CORRECTLY. I’VE BEEN A CONSERVATIVE, BIBLE BELIEVING PASTOR FOR 48 YRS., & 15 DAYS TILL I HAD TO RETIRE BECAUSE OF MY HEALTH. WHATEVER REPUBLICANS CALL THE DEMOCRATS, THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE. ONE THING FOR SURE, YOU ARE EITHER ON GOD’S SIDE OR THE DEVIL’S SIDE, & DEMOCRATS CERTAINLY AREN’T ON GOD’S SIDE. THERE’S NO DECENCY ABOUT THEM ANYMORE.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP. IF YOU DON’T CONCEDE, THEN YOU ARE STILL PRESIDENT…SO JUST DON’T CONCEDE & TELL YOUR 100 MARINES TO GUARD THE FRONT, REAR & ALL THE DOORS, BUT I’M STAYING. IF THE SUPREME COURT IS GONNA TURN ME DOWN, THEN THE CONSTITUTION WILL DEFEND ME. “HERE I STAND! I CAN DO NONE OTHER!” THE PEOPLE VOTED ME IN FAIRLY & SQUARELY & IT TOOK THE DEMS 3 WEEKS TO CATCH ON THEIR DIRTY VOTING TACTICS, TO CATCH PRESIDENT’S ACCURATE VOTES.

    GENERAL GEORGE WASHINGTON MADE 1 LAST STAND AT VALLEY FORGE, WHEN HE WENT ACROSS THE DELEWARE RIVER, DODGING ICE & FREEZING WATERS & HIS TROOPS STARVING. A SURPRISE NIGHT TIME ATTACK ON THE BRITISH, COMPLETELY TOOK THEM BY SURPRISE. DEFEATED THEM, THEN THEY SAT DOWN TO DINE ON THE FOOD THEY LEFT BEHIND.. LIKE YOU ARE GOING
    TO SURPRISE THE DEMOCRATS WHEN YOU DON’T LEAVE THE WHITE HOUSE.” IT’S PERFECTLY LEGAL & ITS BEEN DONE IN THE PAST BY 2 DIFFERENT PRESI-DENTS. LOVE YOU MR. PRESIDENT FOR THE 100’S OF WONDERFUL THINGS YOU DID FOR 100’S OF DIFFERENT GROUPS & PEOPLE. WE LOVE YOU DEARLY.

    I DO PRAY FOR THE DEMOCRATS TO FIND CHRIST AS THEIR SAVIOUR, BUT SOME OF THEM ARE TOO FAR GONE. THEY MUST REPENT OF THEIR SINS. THE FIRST THING OUT OF JOHN THE BAPTIST MOUTH IN MATT. 3 & OUT OF JESUS MOUTH IN MATT. 4: WAS, “REPENT (TURN FROM YOUR WICKED SINS) FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND.” IF THEY DON’T REPENT, HELL IS WAITING FOR THEM, & THEY WILL BE PAID BACK EVERY WICKED THING THEY DID TO CHRIST, & TO YOU MR. PRESIDENT. THE DEVIL WILL PAY TOO, BELIEVE ME & THE BIBLE

  9. Trump and the gop murdered 250,000+ Americans glad he will burn in hell with his comrads in Russia.He is a coward a traitor,a thief and a lier–a good republican.

    • I totally agree with you! How anyone with half a brain can’t see what Trump was and is, is a fool. He is still using them for money, which is all he cares about. These Trump loving so called Christians, is just laughable on so many levels. The guy has been a con his whole life and will never change. He himself has admitted behind closed doors he lost, but he can’t continue to collect money from his blind followers, if he admits that.

  10. So in watching the elections it appears that the majority of people who voted in PERSON wanted Trump (as the numbers showed), but the people who voted by MAIL seem to want Biden (which seems to be giving him the lead). So my question is; how did Biden’s team manage to coordinate and so precisely divide so much of his votes to come through the mail rather than in person? Did Biden know that mail-in ballots would be counted last? It appears security is strong at the counting stations but was there something that effected the ballots/votes BEFORE they got to the counting stations to sway the mail-in votes toward Biden?

    • If Donald Trump actually won the election, we are on our way to perdition. I grew up in a religion which taught, “Let your government be by the voice of the people, but see that they choose righteousness, for it is common for a part of the people to choose evil, but not common for the greater part to choose evil, for if the time comes that the greater part of the people choose evil, destruction swiftly follows.” That’s why people like you scare me to death, because you are certainly choosing evil. Donald Trump despised the poor and the weak. Read the 25th chapter of Matthew, beginning at the 31st verse, and see what the Lord says about denying the poor and needy. You can also read Isaiah 32:7-8 to see what GOD has to say about liberals. Anybody who is not at least a millionaire is shooting themselves in the foot to vote republican, much less for Donald Trump. Trump also tried to make himself a dictator by setting himself above the law. I don’t know why this computer keeps repeating my reply to one person to every other person to whom I try to reply. My reply to Kiraoso is that more poor people vote by mail because they don’t have cars, and they can’t take off from work because they will lose pay, if not their jobs, or they are disabled and live in nursing homes, as I do. We are all too smart to vote for Trump. As I said, any one who isn’t rich and votes republican is shooting themselves in the foot.

  11. When President Trump wins his second term I would like to see his
    second term exclusively concentrated to cleaning out the swamp.
    The democratic party has been corrupt since the first term of Clinton.
    The Bush years were just as bad.

    Since the President is not a corrupt politician, he really isn’t liked by
    either of the corrupt parties. The republicans don’t know how lucky
    they are to have him representing them.

    I would like to see a new party come to fruition. I think that would
    simplify cleaning the swap of ALL corruption blue and red.

    • I agree that our government is corrupt and dominated by the wealthy, but Donald Trump is the most corrupt politician I have seen in my eighty years of life, except for possibly Ross Burnett or George Wallace.

  12. TO OPEN OUR SCHOOLS WILL BE THE BIGEST MISTAKE AMERICA CAN MAKE!!!!!!!!!

    I AM A RETIRED DR., AS I STATED BEFORE THAT WE FOUND OUT THE FLU , WE THOT VACINATING THE ADULTS WOULD PROTECT US.
    WE FOUND OUT DIFFERENTLY , THAT OUR CHILDREN BROUGHT IT IN. TO OPEN THE SCHOOLS ,THESE CHILDREN WILL PROBABLY IN ABOUT ONE WEEK THE MAJORITY WILL CATCH IT , BEC EVEN ADULTS DON’T COVER THEIR NOSE. THE BIGEST PROBLEM IS THE CHILDREN WILL CATCH IT, NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO THE MAJORITY OF THEM . THEY WILL BE ASYMPTOMATIC

    IT WILL HAPPEN WHEN THEY GET HOME ,THEY WILL SPREAD IT TO THE PARENTS AND OLDER RELATIVES,

    MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WILL COME DOWN WITH IT. I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR BEHAVIOR AT HOME, HOW TO KEEP FROM SPREADING IT. IT WILL BE BROUGHT IMMEDIATELY INTO MILLIONS OF HOMES.

    HAVE THE MILITARY PREPARE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF BEDS , THE PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS WILL CATCH IT.
    DO IT NOW BEFORE YOU OPEN THE SCHOOLS OR IT WILL BE THE BIGGEST DIASTER , YOU HAVE EVER SEEN.
    YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT WEARING MASKS IN PUBLIC ,SPACING AND ALL, BEC YOU WILL HAVE LET IT INTO EACH HOME. PEOPLE MIGHT AS WELL ALL GO BACK TO WORK, DON’T WORRY ABOUT ADULTS BRINGING IT HOME. IT WILL BE THERE ALREADY FROM THE CHILDREN.

    IF YOU INSIST ON OPENING THE SCHOOLS JUST HAVE A FEW SCHOOLS IN EACH DISTRICT DO IT, IT WILL STILL BE A TERRIBLE DIASTER.

    YOU NEED TO TELL THE PARENTS HOW TO SAFE GUARD THEMSELVES FROM THEIR ASYMPTOMATIC CHILDREN.
    THIS IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE SAFE GUARDS AT SCHOOL. YOU STILL NEED SAFE GUARDS. BY OPENING JUST ;’TEST SCHOOLS’ IN EACH SCHOOL DISTRICT, WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO TEST THE ‘ WATER, SO TO SPEAK’

    ALSO ON VOTING,MAILING HOME BALLOTS WOULD BE A MISTAKE. INSTEAD , HAVE THE POLLS OPEN ABOUT 3 DAYS,YES, I SAID ABOUT THREE DAYS, EACH PERSON SHOULD WEAR A MAST OR ONE BE GIVEN TO THEM, AND WEAR GLOVES,YOU WOULDN’T HAVE TO SPRAY DOWN EACH AREA LIKE WE NOW HAVE IT. ABSENTEE BALLOTING WOULD HAVE THE SAME RESTRICTIONS WE HAVE NOW, ALSO ADD ANYONE WHO MIGHT HAVE MORE SUCEPTIBILITY TO THE ‘VIRUS’. LIKE I SAID ABOVE ON THE SCHOOL CHILDREN, IF YOU START THE SCHOOLS, YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT ANY OUTSIDE THE HOME RESTRICTIONS, BEC IT WILL ALREADY BE INSIDE THE HOME.

  13. I want to get my message to the President I am holding you accountable on your campaign for 2020, I have been trying to get in touch with you, obviously the email don’t work I very disturb that the Democrats and Nancy Pelsoi is doing closed doors with Russia

  14. I THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD STOP LISTENING SO MUCH TO THE MEDIA,AND LISTEN TO THE PRESIDENT AND THE VICE PRESIDENT. THEY ARE TRYING TO HELP US DURING ALL THIS AND HAVE EVEN SAID WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.WHICH WE ALL ARE. THE MEDIA, ON THE OTHER HAND, MOST OF THEM IS DOING WHATEVER THEY CAN DO TO TEAR DOWN AND APART EVERYTHING THAT THE PRESIDENT IS SAYING, NOT BECAUSE THEY REALLY CARE ABOUT US BUT FOR A STORY. MOST OF THE TIME THE MEDIA ADDS AND SUBTRACTS FROM WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAYS TO MAKE IT WHAT THEY WANT IT TO BE FOR A DOLLAR, ARE YOU KIDDING ME. THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST CRISIS’S WE AS AMERICANS HAVE BEEN THROUGH. IF I WAS THE PRESIDENT I WOULD SHUT THE MEDIA DOWN SO HE CAN DO HIS JOB, LET HIM ALONE. LET HIM DO WHAT GOD PUT HIM IN THE PRESIDENTS PLACE TO DO. LET HIM DO HIS JOB. QUIT PICKING ON HIM. HES A GOOD PRESIDENT OR YOU WOULDNT HAVE A JOB OR FOOD ON YOUR OWN TABLE TO EAT OR A WAY TO GET TESTED YOURSELF FOR THIS VIRUS. YOU SHOULD BE THANKING HIM. WE ALL IN THE SOUTH DO THANK HIM AND WE ARE DOING AS HE SAYS WE ARE HELPING EACH OTHER WHEN NEEDED AND STAYING AT HOME. ALL I’M SAYING IS HE’S ONE OF THE BEST AND GOOD HEARTED PRESIDENTS WE HAVE HAD. GIVE HIM ROOM TO WORK AND TAKE A BREAK,TEAR EACH OTHER APART IF YOU HAVE TO BUT LEAVE OUR OFFICIALS ALONE. YEAH, I SAID IT OUT LOUD.SINCERELY,MARY TRIGG AND THANK YOU.

  15. I want to send email to President Trump and vice President Mike Pence also. How shall I send them? If suppose I’ll send, will email reach to them in proper way? Will they respond to me at my email?

    • It doesn’t appear very easy to contact the U.S. Attorney directly. However, there is some general contact information available on the Justice Department website.

      Their mailing address is:

      U.S. Department of Justice
      950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
      Washington, DC 20530-0001

      The phone numbers are:

      Department Comment Line: 202-353-1555
      Department of Justice Main Switchboard: 202-514-2000
      TTY/ASCII/TDD: 800-877-8339

      Also, I found another phone number for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in DC – Main Line: 202-252-7566, Media Inquiries: 202-252-6933

  16. I am deeply disturbed by the President’s handling of the coronovirus. He is not following the science or medical recommendations. Anyone who would tell people that injecting disinfectants into their body has lost their mind. He really needs to keep his opinions to himself and follow the medical specialists. We have already lost many people to this virus and his recommendations are dangerous. I ask that you use your position to help the constituents. This is not a poitical but a humanitarian status. I am an independant voter and this weighs heavy on me. Thank you, in advance, for you time and consideration.

    • He never said that. The media takes things he says out of context and he has reli
      ed on medical experts. He put together a whole team of them. There has never been a president who has gotten so many experts on a team to inform the public on a daily basis. How would you have handled the whole situation?

  17. What you have done to President Trump was so wrong. He is doing wonderful things for our country and I am so mad at the Democrats for doing this and you will rue the day. I will NEVER vote for a Democrat again in my lifetime. I believe you and the Dems are jealous of what he has been able to do. Shame, Shame, Shame. AND this will go down in History to dirty your names forever, not his but yours. There was no fair trial, only partisan. God Help us and our country. Our justice system has been damaged by you. I feel so badly for the Trump family for all the things that the media and the Dems have done to our President and his family.

  18. I would like to write a letter to Nancy Pelosi. I am a Canadian and have no idea how to go about it. Thank you
