Get even. Start making your own robocalls to them. They don't even have to be robocalls, just keep calling them & tell them what you really think.
Regards, GF.

Yep. I don't have a landline. But I get TONS of calls to my cell with recordings. It's maddening because I don't have a way to block it. Some even go to voice mail, so I have to play my voice mail back to sort through real calls vs those robocalls.

the more 'battle ground' the state, the more likely you will get ... harassed?... When I lived in NY, hardly anything. Here in VA, I could build a house from all the mailing they send me.... or a least a decent brew shed.

I only get robo-calls from one number and it's something about refinancing a mortgage I don't have. I have been getting door to door campaigners looking for my landlord, so that's really annoying. Robo-calls or not, I'll still be glad when the election is over.

Ah the robo call....
Gotta hate it but the only ones I get here in MN are from organizations I've willingly joined.

Now door knockers, that's another story. I used to do that job for four years running different canvassess on different issues and elections. Interesting work, gives you an interesting insight into your town and the people that live in it. Also, I have tough skin from getting yelled at so often. Anyways, if I don't have the time and I don't agree with them I'll just be polite, offer them some water or a bathroom and ask them to leave. But if I got some time to kill and I don't agree with them it can be fun to mess with them and play devils advocate. I get a kick out of it, I learn something new from the way they think and it keeps them from getting to more doors that night. So, if I have the time it's win win!
