  • Tell your MP you are a constituent in their electorate.

  • Writing your own subject line and message is more impactful than a form letter.

  • Keep your message short and punchy – a couple of simple sentences explaining why you care is perfect.

  • Include a call-to-action – what do you want your MP to do about gambling advertising?

  • Be polite – it’s always best to get the message across in a friendly way.
