However, if you do not live in the U.S., I would prefer it if you use Lamar Smith, the House member who currently represents University of Texas or the representative who represents the physical place you live (i.e. where your house/apartment is located). If you are from a territory like Puerto Rico, you are welcome to use their delegation. You can locate the House of Representatives at: www.house.gov . Type in your zip code and it should tell you the name of your house member. You will probably need your full zip XXXXX + 0000 (9 numbers total). If you dont know your full zip, the house website will direct you to http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp which will allow you to find out your full zip code.
