Voice Broadcasts are quick and easy to set up within Liberalist.
Calls cost only 3 cents for 30 seconds or 5 cents for 60 seconds for each live voter or voice-mail box reached.
To ensure that campaign spending is easily tracked, the Help Desk recommends having your Candidate or Official Agent use their credit card for Voice Broadcasts. To put credit on your Voice Broadcast Payment Account, first set up your Payment Options in Liberalist.
