State and Federal officials

The Kentucky Voter Information Center tells registered voters which state and federal legislators represent them and provides links to their official Web pages, which contain contact information. For those who aren’t registered to vote, Project Vote Smart provides a way to search for elected state and federal officials by ZIP code.

Several toll-free lines allow Kentuckians to leave messages for state lawmakers and track the progress of particular legislation: legislative message line, 1-800-372-7181; bill status line, 1-866-840-2835; calendar (meetings) line, 1-800-633-9650; TTY message Line, 1-800-896-0305; en español, 1-866-840-6574.
