HELLO, my name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [city, state].
I am calling to urge [Representative/Senator name] to support the Congress Commission Act that would study the impact electoral systems, U.S. House size, and gerrymandering has on our democracy.
Studying the drawbacks of our current electoral system and investigating fairer systems and strategies to be implemented are the first step in the direction of improving the descriptive representation of our government.
I am counting on [Representative/Senator name] to take action on this issue and support the Congress Commission Act.
Thank you for your time.
