Tell your senators -- get to work!

Congress has had a lot of vacations this year, including a month-long break to fundraise and campaign right before Election Day. Meanwhile, key positions like the Surgeon General, Election Assistance Commission, and over 150 others remain vacant -- and they'll stay that way unless the Senate acts.

Call your senators today. Let them know you expect them to stay in Washington until they do their jobs!

To find your elected officials, please enter your ZIP Code. If you live in a split district, you may need to enter your full address.

On your call, be sure to:

  • Let them know your disappointment that the Senate has been too bogged down by partisan gridlock to address pressing issues.

  • Express your concern that important posts like the Surgeon General and the Election Assistance Commission have been left vacant.

  • Demand that your senator do everything in his or her power to ensure that nominees before the Senate get a fair up-or-down vote before senators head home for the holidays, even if that means staying in Washington, D.C. past December 12.
