You would think it would be easy as pie to look up and contact your lawmakers. But you have to know where to look. Florida doesn't have a "one-stop shop" lookup for all the contact info for your legislators in one place. For some reason, they are very hesitant to give out email addresses, preferring that you "email" them through their contact form. US Senators Rubio and Scott just won't give it out. US Representatives (Congressmen and women) almost never give it out either. Only the lobby tools index listed below, for example, lists actual email addresses for the State Representatives and State Senators by name, but lobby tools doesn't look up your representative for you. But here are several options:
Believe it or not, the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has the most comprehensive lookup I could find! It lists name, email where available, district number, phone number, web/facebook/twitter URLs. Under "show more," you will find both their local (district) office contact info as well as their Capitol office information.
OpenStates.org will look up your House Representative and your State Senator. These are the state legislators who write state laws. Contact info is given for both Reps and Senators. Email addresses are listed only for senators.
Common Cause will look up everyone from your president (hope you already know who that is) down to your local city/county officials. They don't provide email or street addresses, but they list the official's name, phone number, and homepage/facebook/twitter links.
House Lookup. You can also look up your House Representative and send him/her a message through the contact form at the House lookup.
State Senate lookup. You can look up your State Senator and "email" him/her through the Senate lookup and contact form.
Here's an email tip. Once you know your State Rep's or Senator's names, you can email them using the format:
"email@example.com" to email your House Rep, and
"firstname.lastname@example.org to email your state senator.
Lobby Tools Index lists all state senators and house representatives by name. You can look up their full contact information, including email addresses, using this handy tool.
