Contacting your elected representatives to let them know how they are doing is an important part of engaging in democracy. Don't know how to reach them? No problem, we have compiled a list of phone numbers for all of your elected representatives, from local council all the way to the President of the United States! We call them "blue sheets" because we print them on blue paper.
You can also get a personalized list of your local representatives through the County Clerk's office by entering your street address.

Fayette County Registration Rates
by D. Stephen Voss, Ph. D.

Note: This independent research was funded by the office of the Fayette County Clerk. The research and conclusions are the responsibility of Voss alone, not of Clerk Donald W. Blevins, Jr., or of Prof. Voss’ employer.
