Is it bad where you are??
In Illinois there is quite the heated race for governor. It doesn’t stop there- the TV commercials for all local races are to the point that you would rather write in Daffy Duck than vote for one of the candidates. The accusations, name calling and twisted facts not only attempt to assume that we are stupid, they are annoying. We get at least 2-3 phone calls a day from those Robocall’s. Apparently ROBOCALLS are EXEMPT FROM THE DO NOT CALL LIST! (Stoppoliticalcalls.org)
Robocall is a term for an automated phone call that uses both a computerized autodialer and a computer-delivered pre-recorded message. The implication is that a “robocall” resembles a telephone call from a robot. Robocalls are often associated with political and telemarketing phone campaigns, but can also be used for public-service or emergency announcements.
My question for you is this: is it fair that these election robocalls should be exempt from do not call and allowed to pretty much harass us?
