Senator Details Contact Info Reviewed? Known Position on Bill

2. How are they voting?

First, see whether your Senator has already issued a public statement on their position.

Use the contact information above to check your Senator’s website for any official statements about their position on the gun control bill. When you check their website, sign up for email updates to track statements issued that way. Make note of the official’s statement and where you found it and submit below.

If not, call your Senator.

Call your Senator’s office at the telephone number provided above. Be prepared to introduce yourself and ask to speak with someone who can tell you about the Senator’s position on the gun control bill (usually someone in constituent services). Be sure to let them know you reside in the official’s state or district, and that you are interested in learning how the official plans to vote specifically on Senate Bill 649 — yes, no, likely yes or likely no. If the staffer says the official isn’t prepared to answer, clarify whether the lawmaker is undecided or is not commenting.

Take notes of your conversation, noting the name and title of the person you speak with. Then let us know what you learn by completing the form below.
