Sample Script for Calling a Policymaker

Hi. I am Susan Voter calling for Senator Jones. I live at 123 Morning Glory Circle in your district.

If you get the Senator - ask if this is a good time to talk. If not, when can you call back.

If you get the machine, leave a message:

I'm calling to urge your support for current proposals to expand access to health insurance for people in Connecticut. I think this is a critical issue. With the current economy, more and more people are losing health insurance. Not only is health coverage important for the health of the people affected, but it also saves money for all of us in the long run when everyone can get preventive care and early detection and treatment for problems.

Again, I urge your support. If you have any questions or comments, please call me back at 555-5555. Thank you for your time and for your public service.
