It’s important to know who is representing you in government, arguably now more than ever.

If you’re not quite sure who all your representatives are, Facebook actually has a tool where you can quickly see them in one place, along with how to connect with them to express your concerns or your thanks.

To find it, log in to Facebook on a desktop computer and then select “Town Hall” on the left side of the page below “Explore.” You might need to expand that “Explore” section in order yo see it.

From there, you can opt to follow your local government on the social network, as well as see who your local, state, and federal representatives are. Beside each you’re given the opportunity to follow them on Facebook, and below each one there’s a button where you can contact them directly about an issue.

On the same page you can also sign up for local voting reminders for your area, so you don’t miss an election, and you can enter your actual physical address to get a “constituent” badge, so your representatives know when you comment on something they post or send a message that you’re actually someone in their area.
