The links above include each legislator’s direct dial number in Salem. In theory the state capitol's toll-free line is not designed for contacting legislators — you're supposed to use the direct dial numbers. But in practice, if the Legislature is in session the operators will usually forward such calls. Those numbers are (800) 332-2313 statewide or (503) 986-1187 in Salem.
If you want to send "snail mail," you can do so at the following common address:
