It’s pretty easy to contact your MP these days — or so you might think.
But reflect on this: 78% of the UK population were found, in a study by the Hansard Society, not to know their own MP’s name. And if you don’t know someone’s name, it’s a lot harder to Google for their contact details.
We keep a rolling survey on WriteToThem: every user is asked whether or not they have ever contacted a representative before, by any method. The number of people who say ‘no’ is consistently above 50%, giving us assurance that we are reaching some demographics which were, for whatever reason, previously disengaged.
