Legislators are elected to represent all the residents of Colorado. The opinions of individual citizens are very important to your legislators. For instance, a group of elemen-tary students contacted their Legislators and, through the students' research and promotion, legislation was adopted and the Colorado Hairstreak butterfly was designated as the official state insect. Realizing that they can have some influence with the legislature, more citizens have gotten involved and have worked with Legislators on issues.
If you have an issue that you feel is important to the state, call or write your legislator. It is possible that your idea or suggestions could become law in Colorado.
Legislators may be contacted in person, by telephone, or by mail in order to express an opinion on proposed legislation or to suggest future legislation. Obtain your legislator's name and address from your county clerk or by visiting the legislative website.
Correspondence may be sent to any Senator or Representative.
When communicating by mail with your legislator, please use the following format:
The Honorable (name of Representative/Senator)
State Capitol (room 307/room 346)
200 East Colfax
Denver CO 80203
Dear Representative or Senator (name)
