The “How To” on Finding Your District & Legislators

Step 1: Determine Your Legislative District

  • Visit this website: http://azredistricting.org/districtlocator/
  • Type in your address into the yellow box that says “address” (top right corner of web page)
  • Click “Find”
  • This screen will show the Congressional District and the Legislative District. Both are important, but focus on the Legislative District for identifying your Legislators

Step 2: Identify Your Legislators

  • Visit this website: https://www.azleg.gov/memberroster/
  • Click on the Column header "district" to list by district and note the Senator and Representatives for your legislative district.

Step 3: Get to Know your Legislators

Take the time to click on the names of your legislators in the member roster. In most cases, their websites will include a picture and a brief bio that contains information about them.  Read the bios of each legislator for bits of information that might become useful in conversation. You never know what connection you might have to one of your legislators!

Step 4: Email Your Legislators
Now that you know your legislators, send them an email to personally invite them to join us for Lunch on the Lawn - you can use the template below to reach out. Even if you cannot attend the event yourself, please consider inviting your legislators - the more ATs and Legislators we can get to attend the event, the better!
