First, campaigns are legally required to collect your name and address for contributions exceeding $50. (And your profession and employer for contribution in excess of something like $250.) Don’t make up names and mailing addresses. Let’s keep elections clean.

But, there is zero requirement to give your phone number or email address. You are perfectly free to tell them to cram it if they ask for them, and that should help a lot.

ETA: if a campaign gets a non-compliant donation, like cash in excess of $50 or a check without the required information, they are required to donate it to charity or put it to a similar non-political use.
