Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says there's good news for Hoosiers regarding robocalls.

New complaint data says the number of robocalls to Indiana residents continues to drop.

Two years ago, there were about 1,000 robocall complaints per month. Now, that number is down to 550.

Zoeller says while this is a good sign, more still needs to be done to lower that number even more.

If you want to reduce these robocalls, you can sign up for the Do Not Call list.

The deadline to do that is Tuesday, May 20th.

You can register a residential landline, cell phone, VOIP or prepaid wireless numbers.

You don't need to re-register unless your address has changed.

Out of state area codes can also be added as long as the billing address is in Indiana.
