Political campaigns use all sorts of communication to reach voters.
Flyers, billboards, mailings, tv and print ads, Facebook and Twitter posts are just a few.
And now we can add text messages to the list.
Both Democratic and Republican campaigns are relying on mass-texting apps that send huge numbers of texts per day without running afoul of anti-spam laws.
The texts are called peer-to-peer texts messages and are ultimately sent by a human user – not an automated text blast. That’s why they aren’t regulated.
