I got a call around 6:30pm last night and it was someone from some political committee, some "democratic process... something or other" IIRC - not
specifically related to the Democratic Party, by name at least. The young woman rattled off something I couldn't really understand (kinda mumbled
spanish accent) asked if I knew there was an election today and if I had voted. I said that I did and she asked if she could ask me some questions.
When I said yes she acted very surprised and was like, "oh, well OK.." it seemed she had to find the questions to ask and wasn't expecting to get a
yes answer or she was just totally distracted and unprepared.
She started stating the candidates for certain races and asked who I voted for. I told her I wasn't going to tell her any of my votes and if that is
what this survey was for, then she could stop and just put down that I voted. She gave a disgusted "kkiihuhhh" noise and mumbled something as she
IDK if this is kind of call is for, to remind people to vote if they haven't and or to try to find out who you voted for, or both. I'm guessing
that is really the only reason I can see. It was about 90 mins before polls closed. I don't remember ever having calls like this, and the caller
did specifically ask for me by name, so I was on some list.
Did anyone else get calls like this? I wonder what would have happened had I said I didn't vote, would they have suggested candidates and urge me to
vote? I thought they might have been doing a survey about experience at the polls not asking who I voted for, I didn't think people would have the
gall to do that.
