Secretary of State creates political don't call list

Secretary of State Ross Miller said Wednesday he has created a "Please Don't Call" list for Nevadans who don't want the constant campaign phone calls.

He said he has heard from numerous voters tired of having their evenings interrupted by political phone calls. He said the list will give voters the opportunity to tell campaigns they don't want the calls.

But he said compliance is voluntary. While the state and national "Do Not Call" lists bar telemarketers from calling people on the list, that restriction cannot be put on political free speech.

Those who sign up will be listed on the Secretary of State's statewide voter registration list, which is frequently used by campaigns to decide who to call.

Voters can place themselves on the list by visiting the free "My Voter File" online service at, a Web site run by the Secretary of State's Office.

Voters should log in with the requested information and click on the "search" button. When their registration information appears, check the "Please Don't Call" box.
