You Now Have No Excuse Not to Email Your Member of Congress

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.
