We wanted to follow up with you regarding our invitation to participate in a survey of state legislators sent to you last Monday. We have not heard from you at this point but would still greatly appreciate your participation in the project.
We want to remind you that we will maintain the confidentiality of your responses. Your answers will not be linked to you in any presentation of findings. Again, the project examines where and how certain constituents contact their local representatives related to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The survey is short (4 questions) and should not take long to complete. It’s also fine for a member of your staff to provide answers to the survey questions.
The consent form provides additional information. I have attached it again for your convenience.
We hope to hear from you. Thanks again for your time.

To the Office of State Representative Lifferth,
My name is Brittany Bramlett, and I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania. Along with my undergraduate research assistant, Chelsey Clevenger, we are contacting you because we would like to interview you or someone in the office for a research project entitled: The Aged Context and the Affordable Care Act.
The project examines where and how certain constituents contact their local representatives related to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
As the office for Representative Lifferth, we would appreciate the opportunity to interview you or someone in your office. If you consent, we will e-mail you a short survey to answer with a reply e-mail. This survey should not take longer than 15 minutes to complete and will be very helpful for our research.
For more information, you can find the interview consent form attached.
Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to hearing back from you.
