We noticed Cowboy State Daily columnist Dave Simpson was bothered by incessant voting reminders that plagued him whenever he opened up his Facebook page.
“I’ve voted in every election for the last 48 years. Thanks for all the reminders to vote, FB, but I don’t need your constant harping to get me to the polls,” he said to Facebook.
That got us to thinking: there’s gotta be a way to turn off that reminder.
We’re all for voting. We like voting. We prefer voting to anarchy, in fact.
But, if you don’t need the reminder, there should be a way to kill it.
With a little bit of sleuthing, we found the answer.
On your mobile phone, click the three lines at the bottom right of your screen.
Scroll until you see an item called “See More.” Click it.
Scroll until you see “Town Hall”. Click it.
Look to your upper right and click on “Settings”.
At the very bottom, you’ll see a field called “Voting Reminders”. Swipe the nob to the left.
On your desktop, look at the nav bar on the far left. Click “See More”.
Scroll down to “Town Hall”. Click on it.
On your far right, you’ll see “Voting Reminders”. Click on it.
You will no longer get voting reminders.
Again, we prefer voting. We’re not encouraging coups or military overthrows or Chicago-style violence.
But if you are quite content in your voting plans and you’re tired of seeing the reminders, consider us your friendly helpers.
