INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana residents who want to be added to a state-run Do Not Call registry have more time to sign up.

The attorney general’s office says it has extended the registration deadline to midnight Monday to give people more time during the busy holiday week. The sign-up period had been due to expire on Tuesday.

Signing up is designed to prevent legitimate telemarketers from calling or texting numbers, and it allows people to file complaints with the attorney general’s office if they receive unwanted calls. More than 2 million phone lines are registered for the list.

The updated list will take effect Jan. 1.

You can call 888-934-9969 or to verify that your number is on the list, go to www.in.gov/attorneygeneral/2678.htm
