In my experience, actual paper mail is the most likely to get opened and read (usually by an aide) and passed along at least as part of a summary. Direct email (either sent directly or by form from the concresscritter's own web site) is the best of the electronic options. Petition sites get ignored, as does much of the spew from propaganda sites.
If you send mail (or email) directly, you know exactly what is delivered, and you're seen as somebody who cared enough to formulate and send your own opinion.
