How to get family friendly jury duty laws for your state
Mention your issue (i.e., Family Friendly Jury Duty Legislation) and ask him to sponsor legislation. If some other legislator has already sponsored a bill addressing this cause, ask your legislator to support that bill.
Do not ever address more
than one topic. If you want to talk about two or three issues, write or call
several different times.
You need not hesitate about reaching him at home or work either. Remember, these are your paid representatives.
Address your correspondence properly. The salutation of your letter should always include the appropriate title: "Senator"' or "Representative" before his last name. However, in the address, "The Honorable..."' should precede his name.
To find your legislator’s mailing address, check with your county clerk’s office, or look up your state’s legislature’s website.
Do not be shy about writing your legislator again, particularly if the response was not satisfactory the first time: Your persistence could pay off. When you do write again, refer to your original letter.
