When you have to go to three whole separate websites to find the names and email addresses of your representatives, it’s easy to pass on contacting them. But thanks to a new tool made by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, that job now requires about five clicks (and just a little moral stamina).
The EFF’s new website is called Democracy.io, and it’s pretty damn simple: plug in your address, choose your representatives, and then compose your message. Of course, there’s no guarantee that your lawmaker will listen to you — in fact, this probably just makes whiny constituents easier for them to auto-file into a special email folder — but anything that helps hold Congress to account is more than welcome.
