(KFVS) -

We live in a democracy - and a democracy requires participation from 'we the people'... In other words, you!

Whether you support or oppose what's happening in your state's capitol or in Washington, D.C., you owe it to yourself to let your representatives and lawmakers know what you think. 

We've compiled a list of resources and contact information for the Heartland's elected officials - ranging from state lawmakers all the way up to the U.S. Congress.
