2. But there's not a lot of town halls listed there

Of the 535 members of Congress, we have a handful here, and most of the listings are not for Town Halls, per se, but regular office hours. Most, you will notice, are also Republicans. Only 22 states of the 50 have listings.

There are no town halls listed for any legislator in my state. I went to my Representative's web site, and although it may not be up to date (a problem in itself), the last town halls he held were in 2015. They were fine: one was for "Violence" and the other was for "Women's Issues."

I do write or call my legislators when the occasion is necessary (right now, these are Durbin, Duckworth, and Davis). But I have never received notice of a town hall in any of the states in which I have resided.
