Phone Survey on upcoming election. I’m not telling them who I’m voting for. [OPINION]

Did anybody else receive a survey phone call asking who you’re going to vote for this upcoming election? I did yesterday. I understand phone polling is a practice that’s been happening for a long time, but I’m just not comfortable giving out this information.

I first asked the operator where she got my number from. She said from a registered list of voters. I then asked who was conducting the survey. She gave me some name of a survey company, but failed to tell me what this info was being used for.

Here is my problem: Who is collecting this info? What are they doing with it? Are they going to mark who I am voting for with my name? Because I have no obligation to tell anybody who I am voting for.
