Stop Political Text Messages


Have you been getting political text messages? Are they getting annoying? Sorry, but unsolicited political messages are legal. The FCC allows political campaigns to text potential voters without their permission, as long as they're not using 'auto-dialing technology.'

I just ignore them. But you can stop them. Simply replying with words like STOP or OPT-OUT might work. You'll probably get another text confirming your cancellation and you may have to do this for every campaign that texts you.
