Voting Problems, Voting Ads and Robocalls

Voting is on most American's mind right now. Make sure that your vote is counted. There have been voting irregularities in some places where early voting is allowed. There is evidence if you vote a straight party ticket it will not register the votes.



One of the more annoying things at election time is robocalls which are happening at a record breaking rate this year. I have never liked getting recorded calls. If someone is going to call on behalf of a candidate, they should have supporters calling on their behalf. Robocalling centers allows candidates to inundate our households with little effort. My best advice is to unplug your phone or let an answering machine answer it during the night. Hang up as soon as you know it is a recorded phone call.

We all are being barraged with political ads by mail, by phone and on the television set. One of the best ways to find out where candidates stand is from your Voter's Pamphlet.


Luckily, there are only two more weeks of this. If you should have any trouble voting or find that the process seems to not be working the way you expect, talk to a poll worker. If they are not able to help sufficiently. Contact your Secretary of State's election office.

I volunteer for a political party by making phone calls for an hour or two at a time. These are NOT recorded calls. We do have a script, but are not held to that script when we talk to a live person. I have had many good conversations with registered voters (the only people we call are of our own party). Some want to discuss the election and others are just lonely. Either way, I take the time to listen to their concerns and learn their views. It has been very rewarding. '

As Americans, we have a duty to vote. It is also our privilege and a chance to voice our opinions of what we want from our elected officials who run the government.

No matter which party or your choice for president - VOTE ON NOVEMBER 4th.
