A “robocall” is a phone call that utilizes both an automatic dialer and a prerecorded message. These types of calls are most often associated with political campaigns, being utilized by unions, special interest groups, individual citizens, and every political party in order to get a message out. Telemarketing robocalls are restricted by the National Do Not Call Registry.
Because political calls are exempt from the Do Not Call List, the use of robocalling is a common campaign strategy. It is important to point out, however, that, although they are allowed on the federal level, many states have laws limiting their use. There have been a few politicians and other groups who have spoken out against them as well, but nothing has ever been done officially to stop them.
Some other entities using robocalls include charities, survey agencies, debt collectors, and health care providers. There is also a system in place in many communities to warn of emergency situations, such as extreme weather, that utilizes the technology to reach as many citizens in as little time as possible.
