<b>Dialing a 'no' vote</b>

EDITOR: I am tired of and increasingly annoyed by all the robocalls I receive. There doesn't seem to be anything I can do about all the business-related calls, as the national Do Not Call Registry seems to have no teeth. But there is something I can do about the calls initiated by political candidates and organizations backing ballot initiatives. As these calls contain no useful information to help me make an informed decision — other than confirming that they don't care about my privacy and peace of mind — I am publicly taking the stand that any political candidate or initiative campaign that initiates a robocall to me will not receive my vote.
