Objective: Find out who your State Senator and State Representative are and print or save their contact information.
1. Use your internet browser (e.g., Internet Explorer) to go to this webpage
2. Type in your address and click “Submit” button.
3. Print or Save this webpage as an MHTML Document.
(For Internet Explorer, look for the toolbar at the top of this window that has “File Edit View Favorites…”. Click “File”; then click “Print” or “Save As…”; find a folder where you want to save the document; change the name of the document (if you don’t like “Who Represents Me—Districts By Address”); then click “Save” button.)
The most important name on this document is the name of your “Texas State Representative”. It is after “Texas State Senator” and before “Texas State Board of Education Member”. Why? Because the State Representative district is the smallest district. Therefore your vote counts more, since there are fewer total votes.
If you finish this lesson, please send me a email so that I can know who has completed what.
In the next lesson, you will call your State Representative. I will suggest what you can say over the phone.
