(Mike Allen)

I don’t have a landline, and I don’t pick up my cell phone when I don’t recognize the number — probably a good policy all around — but I’m curious as to how many robocalls people are getting in the lead up to the Oklahoma runoff elections Aug. 28. We’re just under a month away, and there are some very important primaries to be decided, so I would assume many people are being bombarded during their dinners nightly.

Another thing I’m genuinely curious about: How effective are robocalls? Have you ever been persuaded to vote one way or another based on a recorded message, or do you see it as a minor annoyance? I’m not involved in a campaign, so I’m not collecting data here. I just think the whole process is … weird.
