California Assemblyman Mike Gatto recently disclosed that “only four or five” of the 60,000 emails his office received last year were related to online poker. When there is no effort put forth by players, there is no motivation for lawmakers to take the issue seriously.

There are four bills before California Legislature that would legalize and regulate online poker in the state. It is important to let legislators know that poker players want to play at legal and regulated online poker sites.

Players want to know how they can help – the answer is to contact your California legislators.

It has never been easy to contact legislators, so we created the California Online Poker AllinCA page to help California players easily contact California lawmakers. Simply enter your name, email address, and ZIP code and our system will find your rep and state senator. You can notify them on your stance on online poker through social media with just one click. We also provide the number to call their offices directly.

Our system will keep a running total of all constituents that use our legislative directory. We will then contact each California legislator with the list of poker players in his or her district that want poker legalized over the Internet in California.

Please take a few minutes to let your representatives know where you stand on the issue of online poker via AllinCA. Let your voices be heard!
