Last year during the 2006 election season, I got roughly a dozen autodialer calls, urging me to vote for my favorite democratic candidate. I’m slightly annoyed by these, for the following reasons:
- All of these candidates are running for election in Memphis, TN. I don’t live in Memphis. I haven’t lived in Memphis in three years.
- Campaign staffers aren’t able to take me off of the dialer lists.
- The dialers are calling my cell phone, using up minutes.
I tried calling the TN election commission, and was lost in bureaucracy. I tried calling various campaigns, and encountered clueless campaign staffers and volunteers. I even spent hours scouring TCA last year to understand whether it was legal. Anyone have any ideas?
I fear that the autodialers are starting again… anyone else have these problems?
