Learn How to send an email to the President and other members of congress.

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 other 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 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. Many contact forms are seen only by 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 State Senate’s Web site. The list is arranged 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 email contact form

Please note that the list changes whenever there are changes in office.

  1. 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.

  2. 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
