Elections should be about more than just voting. They should be opportunities for constituents to get to know their elected officials, interact with them, and get a good feel for whether or not their representatives are actually serving their best interests. In that spirit, the ACLU of Wisconsin has created a comprehensive guide instructing voters om how they can directly engage with their current elected officials and candidates who are running to represent them.
This toolkit overviews a variety of different methods people can employ to actively engage and influence elected officials, from arranging meetings and garnering media attention, to effectively doing advocacy and more. Check it out, and make sure to share it with your friends and family too!
