21. Call Your Congressperson And Let Her/Him Know About This
Call you Member of Congress and let her/him know about this.

Provide as much information (dates, times of calls, numbers showing on caller ID, etc), and ask the person in your Congressperson's office for advice.

Oh, and remind the person in your Congressperson's office that you vote.
