  2. 2. Why use POPVOX? A verified constituent is hard to ignore. • Anyone can write to Congress, but lawmakers only want to hear from constituents, people who live in their district or state. • POPVOX verifies you’re an actual constituent — and guarantees delivery of your message. Petitions are obsolete. • There’s power in numbers — but numbers of constituents who share their own thoughts. • Obviously fake “names” on a petition make a mockery of a serious issue – and lawmakers view petitions as little more than spam.
