Why do you receive political robocalls and text messages?

people
Starting in the early 2000’s, politicians have been increasing their campaign investments in political robocalls and text messages because they have higher engagement rates and are more effective than traditional methods like TV ads. Unlike illegal robocalls and text messages, you likely don’t receive political messages at random. Information about your political party affiliation, area you live in, or even past political donations become accessible to campaign groups when you register to vote and identify your political party preference.

Are political robocalls and texts regulated the same way as other robocalls?

book
Any political robocall or robotext sent from an autodialer to a smartphone is required to follow consent-based regulations outlined by the FCC. The recipient must have provided prior consent to receive these message “blasts”. Prior consent could have been given when you provided your phone number when registering to vote or if you have ever made a political donation in the past. It’s also worth noting that any political robocall made to a landline phone does not require prior consent.

Can you unsubscribe from political robocalls or text messages?

unsubscribe
The short answer is yes. The long answer is not easily. Registering your phone number on the Do Not Call List in attempts to stop political messages will not help - political calls/texts and charities are not required to follow the Do Not Call List by law. The best way to reduce the political messages you receive is to update your voter registration to remove your associated phone number, follow the instructions from the FTC here, and/or enlist a third-party call and text blocker like RoboKiller or TextKiller.
