Sick and tired of “voting” calls? Take them to court

Did you know that many nonprofits and campaign offices are breaking the law when they call you with those pre-recorded “voting” messages? Mainly because they don’t follow all the rules that protect them.
We didn’t. But boy are we glad to know we can take them to small-claims court if we so choose. Voting is great and all, but when you get bombarded at your workplace on an unlisted number, then voting becomes a second priority to putting food on the table. And we’re sure the employer won’t be terribly happy that some campaign list is targeting their place of employment.

    You can take them to court, but it’s awful darned hard to prove. The caller ID doesn’t show up and if you didn’t think to record the message (which is probably illegal), what proof do you have?
    They’ll blame it on an errant contractor. They always do.
