Determining Your Legislative Districts
And Legislators
 

The Indiana House is comprised of 100 single-member districts, with all 100 members elected every two years in even-numbered (General Election) years. The Indiana Senate is comprised of 50 single-member districts, with half the members elected to a four-year term every two years.

To find your legislative district and Hoosier legislators in the Indiana House of Representatives, Indiana Senate, and United States House of Representatives, go to http://in.gov/legislative/ and click “Who’s Your Legislator?” on the right. To obtain information about your legislators, click his or her name.

Alternatively, you can take advantage of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce's "Capitol Connect" service. Simply enter your (home) street address and nine-digit Zip Code and the site will give you a choice of legislative listings. To connect, click here and follow the instructions. You may note a few minor "glitches" (for example, if you ask for all officials, one of the listings you get back is Secretary of State Todd Rokita, listed as "Secretary Todd Rokita"), but the service is generally quick, accurate and easy to use.

How to Contact Your Legislators
In addition to contacting them at home on most weekends during the legislative session, you can reach your legislators by mail, by telephone and (in most cases) by e-mail. For additional information on contacting your legislators, click here.

How and What to Communicate with Your Legislators
If you have not previously contacted your legislators, doing so for the first time can be intimidating. Remember that they are your elected representatives in Indiana government, and you have a right to communicate with and to “lobby” them, based on your views.
