(INDIANAPOLIS) - Attorney General Greg Zoeller is speaking out against unwanted political calls.

Zoeller is warning political campaigns and political groups to adhere to state telephone privacy laws and refrain from robocalling residents leading up to the 2016 general election on November 8th.

Zoeller also warns Hoosiers of such calls that are illegal if there isn't a live operator that obtains your permission before playing a recorded message. Zoeller's office has received nearly 14,000 complaints about unwanted calls in 2016, a majority of which were about robo-calls.

Campaigns and political groups are allowed to make traditional live calls, even to numbers registered on the do not call list, as long as the calls are not sales calls.

Zoeller says if someone receives an unwanted campaign call, simply ask to be removed from the caller's list. To block general telemarketing calls or for more information, visit the Attorney General's website at https://secure.in.gov/attorneygeneral/2446.htm
