If your elected officials don't hear from you, they'll assume that you like everything they're doing. Write or call elected officers or representatives and tell them what you think and why. Write letters to the editor when you want to share an opinion with your community and when you'd like others to take action, too. Expect much faster results than you'd get waiting for the next election.

1. Write local and state government officials
