The senators have been receiving a higher volume of calls from constituents since President Trump took office that their voicemail inboxes have been filled to capacity. From what we know, voicemails are being written down as quickly as possible but staffers are unable to listen to the messages to clear the backlog and answer the phones simultaneously.
If the phone lines are still busy and voicemail inboxes full, please try the following:
- Look up your Representative's local office phone number
- Tell your Senator or Representative on Twitter that you’re unable to reach them
- Send them an email or contact them on their website
- Keep trying as often as you can and if you reach their voicemail, don't forget to leave your name and address
In the next few days, we're adding the representatives' local numbers so, you can call multiple numbers.
On behalf of the 5calls.org Volunteer Staff, thank-you for making calls! #makeyourvoiceheard
