How Do You Respond to Political Text Solicitations?

Before this year, I had never received a political text solicitation. But I’ve gotten around a half dozen of them in the last few months.

If you’re unfamiliar with these texts, here’s an example of one I received today:

Hi Jamey! This is Robin volunteering with X. The election is coming up quick, and Y is running for re-election…. Are you planning to vote for Y on November 6?

Now, I appreciate good marketing, and I think it’s great that people are getting involved in the political process and encouraging people to vote.

However, I really don’t don’t like getting texts or calls from solicitors unless I specifically signed up for the list. I definitely did not sign up for this list. So it’s a little annoying to get these texts. At least they’ve all arrived during waking hours.

So whenever I get such a text, I politely ask them to remove me from the list. What do you do?
