I will be so glad when the election is over. I'm tired of getting 4 or more political calls nightly. I don't even answer the phone any more between the hours of 4-8 pm.

Tell me about it. And I voted weeks ago so they’re a complete waste of time.

And we get a ton of mail propaganda also.

We get the SAME STUPID PAMPHLETS in our mail box every day! I have voted. Most people had their minds made up weeks ago. Just a waste of postage.

I am so surprised because I have not gotten any calls this election season. I voted in early October.

However, my mailbox has something in it every day and not for the person for whom I voted. What a waste of trees!!

We’ve had people in the neighborhood nightly canvassing for various candidates. Since we dropped off our ballots none have stopped at our house. They all have clipboards which must have lists of people to contact as they look at the clipboard and walk by. It’s an unexpected benefit of voting early.

And the texts. Who said you could text me?
Actually, I replied: “I don’t vote for people who contact me without my permission.”
And the other with: “I don’t vote for people who annoy me.”
Both sides SAID they’d take me off the list and I never received another text.
(I did vote, by mail, and as early as I could!)

I received ONE phone call from President Trump’s campaigners that left a voicemail. I mean no disrespect, as each person is entitled to their opinion and their party affiliation...but they must not have checked mine before they called!

Also, considering the extremely contentious nature of this presidential race, I believe that pretty much everyone has made up their mind either way months ago...so this last minute stuff is probably not worth the time, effort, or money.

I agree. The last few days have been especially crazy! I think since Thursday, I've gotten at least 3-5 calls and at least 3-5 texts each day. Before that, I was still getting some, but nothing like that. It's ridiculous. Just stop already!

Agreed.

I get junk mail and texts.

And YouTube is out of control with all the political ads.

It's irritating.

I have gotten 2 texts and I'm not even sure for which side ( or maybe just to go vote) and each time it had names that started with the same letter of my name, but not my actual name. I rarely give out my cell phone number since I have a landline so I'm not sure how do you got it.

One organization has probably called here at least fifteen or Twenty times, but nomorobo takes care of it

Voted 2 weeks ago

Living in New Hampshire we get about six months worth of calls before the primary

I've been getting texts too and I'm about ready to start having some fun with them.

I've gotten texts throughout the day and at night. I've blocked those numbers, so I don't get many anymore. Thankfully I haven't received any calls. I agree that the Youtube ads are too much.

Don't know if anyone is a fan, but the best political communication I have EVER received is Tenacious D's cover of The Time Warp. Google it for a little Rocky the Vote fun.
