(WICHITA, Kan.) — How late is too late when it comes to the campaign calls to your home?
An Eyewitness News viewer asks the question after she says a recent call interrupted bedtime for her young child.In an email to FactFinder 12, Melissa wrote, "We received a survey call last night...at 8:55 pm. we have an elementary age child and he was already in bed. We are not fond of any calls past 8:30 pm, but especially something of this nature."
We asked the Kansas Secretary of State's office if there's a rule establishing a cut-off time for campaign calls. We learned there isn't one and that it's basically up to the discretion of each individual campaign.
In a statement, the Secretary of State's office says "Common sense and common courtesy are the ruling standards; state law makes no restrictions. Their (a voter's) best bet is to complain to the candidate or campaign because they'll sometimes stop if voters are annoyed or resentful."
