It is recommended that you write a short message about how you feel about a specific issue and sign your name and zip code.
Some things to keep in mind for your postcard:
1. Identify yourself as a voter (name and town or zip-code is fine)
2. Voice your concern ("I am opposed to ________) Keep is short and simple!
3. Thank them, and
4. Sign the postcard
Here is a sample postcard script, edit it to fit the message you want to send:
Dear Senator Bennet
My name is (Chris Doe) and I am a voting resident of (Fraser, CO 80442).
I am opposed to ____________________________, and I urge you to vote (YES or NO) on this issue.

Colorado Representatives - other districts
Your will likely have the most impact on Jared Polis, US Representative for Grand County. Representatives for other Colorado districts are less likely to be swayed by what they see as 'non-constituents' since they don't get our vote, but if you feel the need GO for it anyway! 🙂
