It’s election season again here in the US, and what does that mean? Political messages anywhere and everywhere – on your doorstep, in your mailbox, on the TV, on the radio, on billboards, on yard signs, on bumper stickers, and on your phone. In honor of this election season, I’ve decided to re-share with you an updated oldie but goodie article about eliminating political robocalls from your life, which was originally published on this blog September 10, 2012:
The first time I received a political robocall several years ago I was absolutely irritated – like I wasn’t already bombarded enough by political propaganda. I was fed up, so I hopped on the internet, did a search and almost immediately discovered there IS indeed a free way to stop the harassment – The National Political Do Not Call Registry.
In the fall of 2014, The National Political Do Not Call Registry combined forces with Nomorobo (No More Robo) – a free service that protects users from political robocalls – in addition to regular, run-of-the-mill robocallers, scammers, and telemarketers, and all robocalls can be blocked by using this one easy service.
Since registering (just before the 2004 election), I am happy to report I have not received a single political robocall. To register your phone number, visit Nomorobo.com and sign up today (it’s free).
Decluttering isn’t just about removing extra physical stuff, it’s about removing whatever is no longer serving you in your life – and unless you enjoy receiving these calls, they are indeed clutter. If you’re fed up too, let’s take a stand and send a message to politicians – Stop cluttering up our lives with useless phone calls!
