Contact Your Legislators
Use this link and enter your zipcode to learn the names of the legislators serving your district.
Contact your legislator by writing a letter, making a call, or paying a visit. The West Virginia Legislature website offers all the phone numbers, addresses, and Capitol office numbers for your Senators and Delegates. This toll free number, 877-565-3447, will connect you to the Capitol as well. Handwritten letters are more likely to receive attention than an email. Phone calls are helpful especially when a bill is up for a vote.
The best method for delivering your message is to visit your representative and speak person to person. Currently the WV legislature is in session so call the Capitol offices of the reps to schedule an appointment in Charleston. It is advisable to call at least one week in advance to schedule meetings. As our legislators’ time is valuable, a meeting may only last 15 minutes. Sometime the best that one can do is catch a legislator in the hallway as he/she goes from office to meeting.
Here is a link to a map of the Capitol to assist you in finding offices.
The legislators will be dressed in business attire, so dress appropriately.
