Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find a list of public e-mail addresses for members of Congress?
There is no central listing of member office public e-mail addresses. Each member of Congress establishes their office's policy related to the processing and management of e-mail. Generally, if a member has a public e-mail address, it can be found on the member's website. The office may list a public e-mail address or provide a form directly on the member's website. The U.S. House of Representatives does not provide a listing of public e-mail addresses for the elected Representatives.
What should I do when I enter my ZIP code information and I get the wrong elected Representative?
The Find Your Representative service matches the ZIP code information you provide with a list of congressional districts. If you receive an error due to a missing ZIP code or incorrect member information, please use the Contact Webmaster form to report the problem. Select the appropriate error category (Report an error in the Find Your Representative service.) and provide as much information as possible to assist us in researching the problem. Please be sure to include: Your Street Address, City, State and ZIP code, the member or congressional district information you are trying to reach and the member or congressional district the service is reporting that you feel is in error.
Can I forward my message through the Contact Webmaster mailbox?
No. The webmaster will not forward messages to congressional offices. If you are having problems contacting your representative, you can report the problem using the Contact Webmaster form, write or call your elected representative, or visit the member's website for alternate contact information.
Are there alternative ways to reach my elected representative?
If you know who your representative is but you are unable to contact them using their contact form, the Clerk of the House maintains addresses and phone numbers of all House members and Committees, or you may call (202)224-3121 for the U.S. House switchboard operator. In addition, you may choose to visit your member's website directly for further information.
What is the proper form of address when I write my elected representative?
There are several correct forms of address for a member of Congress including "The Honorable" and "Representative".
Is it okay for my company / organization to link to the Find Your Representative service?
The Find Your Representative service is provided as a public resource for identifying and contacting a constituent's elected representative. There is currently no restriction on a link being posted to the Find Your Representative page at https://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ to facilitate constituents in expressing their concerns and issues to their representative in Congress.

Basic background info:
House Leadership Fails to Stop Legal Challenge to Yemen War
The House leadership's attempts to undermine the bipartisan House Concurrent Resolution 81, which would end US involvement in the Saudi War in Yemen, is failing. On Wednesday, the House unanimously agreed to delay the vote on the resolution to November 2.
The concurrent resolution directs the president to end all military participation in the Saudi war in Yemen immediately, pointing out that Congress never authorized such an operation. Congress has sole discretion to make such a determination, and in over two years of war in Yemen, there's never been such a vote.
While a lot of America's ongoing wars are at present not authorized under the War Powers Act, Yemen is a particularly glaring one, because there isn't even a roundabout argument to be made to try to connect this to the vague AUMF on fighting al-Qaeda. Indeed, in fighting against the Shi'ite Houthis in Yemen, the Saudi-led war has greatly enhanced al-Qaeda's power in the country.
Indications are that support in the House for this resolution is growing, unsurprising given the House's recent votes on selling arms to the Saudis have been increasingly close. The delay will give the vote's supporters more time to shore up support.
Those wishing to call their representatives to express support for H. Con. Res. 81 can find contact information here. Under the War Powers Act, any one representative can bring a challenge like this one, so the prospects of the House leadership actually preventing the vote are virtually nil. This means getting the word out about support for the bill is particularly important.
