Congressional phone number
You can call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 to be transferred to any representative’s or senator’s office. All you have to do is provide the operator your home ZIP code.
Be sure to try and reach your legislators at their district offices when they are not in D.C. Contact information can be found on their congressional website, on their social media page, or in the local phone book under the government section.
You need to know only two addresses to send letters to your U.S. representative and senators, no matter who they are.
Office of Senator (Name)
Washington, D.C. 20510
Office of Rep. (Name)
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515
You don’t need to know what building their office is in or what their room number is. You just need the correct ZIP code and your letter will get there. LL
